Chigwell Challenge Success!

Four Year 5 pupils, Zaynah Islam, Christian Kuponiyi, Rithvik Marreddy and Ananya Vijay, represented Avon House in a General Knowledge Quiz at Chigwell School on Friday, 13th June.

15 teams took part in the Quiz which featured rounds on ‘Famous Faces’, ‘Famous Places’, ‘Music’ and a ‘Maths Relay’.  Excellent teamwork and a good breadth of knowledge meant that Avon House finished in third place and this was an extremely creditable result considering the competition faced on the day.

Congratulations to all concerned!
