9 December 2008
By Emanuel Nordrum
SOME CLEVER tactics enabled four students at Bermondsey’s St Michael's Catholic School to retain the crown at the annual secondary schools' quiz.
Alex Morris, Charlie Beales, Morgan Mitchell, and Noel Onuoha beat students from fifteen other Southwark schools to claim the top prize.
"This was important because we won last year," Noel told the 'News'. "All my friends were putting pressure on me."
The quiz, which was done in eight rounds, allowed contestants to employ a joker to double their points before a single round.
The team elected to use their joker during the sports quiz, which turned out to be their strongest, and the doubled points gave enough of a windfall to sail them past the finish line as victors.
"It went very well," Megan Hammill, the school's gifted and talented coordinator said. "And we're going to win again next year."
This is the third year in a row that St Michael's has won the quiz, which is the only event where every school in Southwark goes head to head.
