Newbridge Library hosted an event that is becoming a firm favourite on the school calendar, The Harry Potter Quiz.
Students were invited to sign up to participate in the quiz that happened during a lunch time session. Madam Whitham and her able assistant Madam Zake led the session of quick fire Harry Potter questions.
The participants were sorted into Houses, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Rawenclaw or Slytherin, they form the teams. The teams had an iPad buzzer to add to the quick fire tension.
The questions were varied covering all aspects of the Harry Potter series, from the simplest of question to the most obscure. We had some true fans in the quiz as they knew even the most minute details making for a competitive quiz.
The final rounds of the session saw contestants going head to head. Slowly, one by one, players were knocked out of the round when their opponent answered the question correctly, in answering the question correctly they progressed to the next round.
The final was tense. Three questions stood between the two contestants and the bragging rights to be named the Harry Potter Champion 2017. The Library fell silent and the questions were posed and within moments we had our champion.
A fantastic session, all students that took part had a great attitude and showed tremendous sportsmanship congratulating the winner.
We are looking forward to next year’s quiz.
