On Saturday 4th February NHSG organised and hosted the annual Inter-schools Classics Quiz. Eight schools from around the region took part in the three age categories. Competition was fierce, but fun: the event was as much about meeting other Classicists from different schools as the quiz itself.
Questions were asked on myth, history, word derivations and language. At the close of the quiz, awards were presented by Mr Alan Beale and Mr Mike Smith of the Northumberland and Durham Classical Association, which kindly provided the prizes.
NHSG did well in all three levels and won the Junior and Intermediate sections.
