​L3 HATS Christmas Quiz

It was HATS on for the L3 this week as they competed in teams during the Christmas Quiz with some frightfully festive headgear to keep us all entertained.

They identified Christmas carols and songs by 3rd and 4th verses, translated into and out of Greek and Hebrew, recalled literature and poetry from classics such as Alcott, Dickens and Clement Clarke Moore as well as trying to remember where Kevin’s family left him for when he was ‘Home Alone’ for the first time! There were historical traditions, geographical placement and an attempt to remember the content of Mr Robertson’s assembly on the 12 days of Christmas from earlier in the term.

The winners were ultimately Shreya, Alex and George but it was a close contest and on average other teams scored more highly per team member. Thus everyone was awarded an edible treat to finish off their first HATS term on a (sugary) high.
