Last week, parents, guests and teachers once again teamed up to pit their wits against each other and Mr Harvey’s brain teasers in the Shoreham College Parents’ Association’s annual fundraiser quiz night. The aim of the evening is to enjoy some relaxing fun, nibbling on a ploughman’s lunch with a glass of wine or such, whilst giving the SCPA some of your hard earned cash that will be employed for charitable or school services.

An enjoyable evening was had by all, and a much contested first place was finally won by the ‘Six on the Beach’ team. Our congratulations to them! Last place this year, was given to the ‘White Lightening’ team. They received their wooden spoons with good grace and have already challenged next year’s quiz contestants to a re-run where they hope to improve in this year’s score. Our commiserations to ‘White Lightening’ and our thanks for taking the game in their stride! Their team however, were rather more successful in the raffle stakes and won a number of donated prizes including a bottle of Moet. The SCPA would like to add that this was the luck of the draw and we promise it wasn’t ‘fixed’ in any way!

The quiz event raised approximately £460 and the SCPA committee will meet up next month to further discuss how we might use these and additional funds to support the school for the remainder of the academic year. Future and upcoming events will also be on the agenda. Any parent interested in joining the committee should contact us at: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Finally, the SCPA would also like to acknowledge the efforts of all the school staff that help us at these type of events and to extend our grateful thanks.
