On Thursday 10th November 2016 Omagh High School’s Development Committee chaired by Mr M. Duffy hosted their inaugural table quiz in the School Assembly Hall. Eight rounds of eight fiendishly set questions later, two teams could not be separated, both tied on an exquisite 58/64.
In the tie break both teams answered superbly yet again but ‘Top Trumps’ just edged victory over ‘The Defending Champions’. Topics on the night included General Knowledge, TV and Film, History, Geography, Sport, Music and a Picture Round.
Big congratulations to all teams who took part on the night and did themselves proud with some excellent quizzing.
Also a huge thank you to the Development Committee Members who organised and hosted the Quiz night – Mr Duffy who was Quiz Master, Mrs Giles, Mrs Cresswell, Mrs Pauley and Mr Clarke who helped set up for the evening and organised food and drinks for the participating teams and carried out the task of marking each of the answer sheets between rounds to allow the event to run very smoothly.
Pictured below are the winning team – ‘Top Trumps’ and the Runners-up ‘The Defending Champions’ with Quiz Master Mr M. Duffy:
