The winners of this round of Quiz Club was one of our very own "home grown Whitehill teams". The next round will take place later in the year ( date and venue TBA).
It was neck and neck right to the end... With three questions to go, the 3 lead teams had only 5 points difference between them. Steady and strategic play payed off for the winners in the end.
Quiz Club delivers exciting quizes nationwide and is the largest host of inter-school quiz competitions. The general knowledge of the children was outstanding and equally their team work and strategic thinking really shone through.
Well done to all 8 teams who competed today. We have uploaded some pictures onto our gallery for you to enjoy
'I spent a delightful day at Whitehill School in November 2014, doing grammar with the children.
They were a joy to teach - very focussed and keen to answer questions - and it was clear that their teachers encourage a real interest in language, something that's often sadly lacking in primary children I meet. It was clear from everything about the school (the corridor and classroom displays, the play areas, the clubs going on at lunchtime, the smooth-running administration and, above all, the teachers' cheerfulness and enthusiasm) that Whitehill is a really happy school, providing the sort of 'broad and balanced curriculum' that's exciting for everyone involved and turns children into committed lifelong learners. It's always splendid to find such schools in the current educational climate, where there's immense external pressure to concentrate on a narrow tests-and-targets agenda, at the expense of other important (but probably immeasurable) aspects of primary education. I'm sure that the Whitehill children I met will do well in national tests, but they're also lucky enough to be spending their childhood in a vibrant educational environment which, in the long run, will enrich their lives and further their careers much more than test scores.’
