The final of the Interhouse Quiz 2015 was, as Wellington said of Waterloo, “A close-run thing”, with only 1 point between the teams. Morrison’s team of Rachael Moore, Tiegan Sargent, Elizabeth Lowe and Farhan Ahmad won, with the Hales team of Laura Hunt, Jake Aldridge, Harry Straine-Francis and Alex Mackenzie coming a creditable second. Nathan Ottaway, Libby Glover and Benedict Croft also played as reserves. Cromer came 3rd and Stanhope 4th.
Over the last 4 weeks each of the House teams played each other, earning points for winning or drawing , and then there were 2 knockout games to decide 1st,2nd,3rd and 4th places. Questions were carefully chosen to suit different age groups and covered subjects like hypothermia, Shinto, Macbeth, Einstein, 10 pin bowling, Greyhound buses, chemical symbols, and French. All of the teams showed a considerable range of general knowledge, and few of the questions remained unanswered, so well done to all who participated.
