As part of SCEGGS celebration of Science Week, the annual Inter-House Science Trivia Competition was held on Thursday 22 August.

The theme for Science Week this year was “Destination Moon”, celebrating the awesome achievements of humankind in its quest to carry astronauts to the moon, land on its surface and safely return, the first successful mission taking place 50 years ago on 20 July 1969.

After a hard-fought four rounds of trivia, we had a very close and exciting finish. Here are the results of the competition:

• Equal 5th place were Barton and Beck on 55 points
• 4th place was Badham on 58 points
• 3rd place was Docker on 63 points
• 2nd place was Langley on 65 points
• 1st place (for a second year in a row) was Christian on 68 points

Congratulations to Christian House for taking out the competition, and thank you to all girls who participated for their house or who supported the teams as audience members.
