On Thursday night our very first staff and student quiz led by deputy house captain of Chapman House, Laura M (Year 12), took place. Laura set about organising the quiz as a way to bring our school community together in a time when it is easy to feel separate.

The current circumstances also influenced her choice of charity, Laura said ‘the donations will be going to the charity Mind as I feel that the resources they give are vitally important in these times, and I would like to support them as much as possible’. We are pleased to report that as of Friday morning, Laura has raised an astonishing £508, that is the equivalent of 63 potentially lifesaving calls answered.

Just as important was the amazing feedback from the staff and students who took part, Kirsty D (Year 13) said ‘I really enjoyed the quiz last night, it was good fun with a great host. The overall community feeling was really nice. We should do some more!’. Scarlet W (Year 9) said ‘I enjoyed the quiz, it was nice to take part in something fun with school, even though we are not in school at the moment. I did the quiz with my family, it also raised money for a worthwhile cause!’.

All the staff at Northallerton School and Sixth Form College are impressed with the determination shown by Laura. Assistant head Miss Cox sums it up well, “This is amazing, we are very proud of Laura.”
