Ark Pioneer Academy First Virtual Family Quiz

Friday 26 March 2021

'How much did Henry VIII weigh when he died in 1547?’

‘What substance is stored in the hump of a camel?’

What’s the maximum score you can achieve in 10-pin bowling?’

Could you have answered the above questions? If so, then you should have been at our very FIRST family quiz on Thursday evening, 25th March 2021! It marked an evening of FUN, EXCITEMENT and SUPER CHALLENGE for all our pupils, parents, governors and teachers who took part in the quiz. There were 9 rounds – Geography, Music and French to name a few – which tested our teams to the limit! Once questions were answered and marks were counted we drum-rolled for the top three winners! Huge congratulations to:

First Place: Lily and Keshini – 7 Mandela

Second Place: Keyarn – 7 Hawking

Third Place: Manal – 7 Tubman

The best part of the evening was the amazing donations our Ark Pioneer community made for the charity Fareshare, which one of our very own Pioneer namesakes, Marcus Rashford, heavily supports. The charity raises money in order to help supply millions of meals to vulnerable children and their families across the UK. The amount raised so far is a whopping £470 + £97.50 gift aid – a full total of: £567.50.
