The Friends of Loretto - A successful first evening event
The Friends of Loretto hosted their first evening event on Friday 26 April 2019 in the Senior School's Red Hall and welcomed about 80 competitors.
The picnics were fantastic with delicious salads, cakes, puddings and homemade goodies all beautifully and artfully displayed with candelabras, tablecloths and flower arrangements. The picnic challenge trophy proved very difficult to judge but tasty to sample! Team 'Lavender Blue' won, and team 'Set Aside' really impressed judges. The students made us all laugh with their pizza, popcorn and Haribos picnic, as did the winning team name 'We thought this was speed dating'.
Brain cells were tested during the Quiz with geography, sport, celebrity photo, general knowledge, music and film questions. It was great to see the children dancing and singing along to the music round. The joker rounds jumbled up the leader board, and the Team 'Quizzy Rascals' were the winners. They will be back next year to defend their title!
Many thanks to everyone who came along and to the excellent Quiz masters Elaine & Jim.
