Tuesday night saw the final of the Great LRC Dr Who Quiz where the best Student Team from the previous heats (D:Alex – Alex Booth, Toni-Leigh Hodges, Rebecca Hankinson, Shauna Frew and Chloe Quinn) met a team of teachers (The Real McCoys – Mr Jackson, Mr Tiley, Mr Mortimer, Mr Acton and featuring as a substitute for Ms Mezzone who was unable to appear, Will Clare). Each team faced a set of challenging questions based on the whole 50 years of Dr Who history written and devised by Mrs Godrich, the Academy Librarian.
Great fun was had by all with each team member dressing up as a character from Dr Who with Mr Jackson and the rest of the teachers being led in by a remote control Dalek. The teachers eventually won with 20 points to 11 and were rewarded with limited edition Dr Who mugs. The student team were awarded with a TARDIS pin badge as a runner up prize. An audience of students, teachers, Mr Mackey, Ms Johnson, parents and the Neighbourhood Librarian for Tameside were on hand to show their appreciation for the extensive knowledge demonstrated by both teams.
A good time was had by all. Well done and congratulations to all who took part and entered into the spirit of the event whole-heartedly.
