On Thursday December 15th we had our annual Carol Service and Christmas Quiz. This was, in my opinion, the best day of the school year. In the morning some of us went around to all the classes and collected money for the quiz tickets and gave out the tickets. After we gathered all the tables and chairs from the classrooms and went down to the sports hall to put them at the back of the hall to set up after the carol service. The school choir sang some Christmas songs and everyone enjoyed themselves. Once the service was over we went into work mode and organised the hall for the quiz.
There was a great atmosphere in the hall when the quiz started, everyone was dressed up in Christmas jumpers or the sixth years all dressed up in different costumes. The Irish dancers opened the quiz for us, 4C followed them with their group dance (Hannah Montana, Shou tout to my Ex, Thriller and Run the World). The teachers all preformed the Haka, which was hilarious. The first round of the quiz was general knowledge. There was another student act before our student group dance. 4B, or the Bríde Bellas, who preformed the final performance of the movie Pitch Perfect. Thankfully we didn't mess up and we all remembered the moves. There were a few more quiz rounds, student acts which included 4A's group dance to High School Musical and more teacher acts. When the quiz finally came to an end we all brought the chairs back to the classrooms and put the tables in lines for Christmas exam centres. There was a lot of hard work put into the quiz, the group dances and setting up but everyone enjoyed themselves so BRING ON NEXT YEAR'S QUIZ!!!
