Highgate Quiz Night 2021

The Highgate Parents & Friends are excited to welcome Quiz Night back for 2021! We will do our 20s Quiz Night in-person or online, and are prepared for whatever COVID throws at us at the 11th hour. We are committed to having some quiz-related entertainment and raising some funds for the redevelopment of the upper years outdoor space, no matter what the restriction level is. We will make a decision about how Quiz Night 2021 will go ahead and notify the community by Monday 13th September; our plans are outlined below for you so you know what to expect.

To book tickets, go to Qkr. You can buy individual tickets (up to 10 in a transaction). You will need to nominate your table captain, or tell us if you need us to find you a table. You can also visit Qkr on the web.

PLAN A

SA knows how to contain a virus! Hopefully we can keep up the good work, and Quiz Night can proceed as planned in the School Gym on Saturday September 18th. If restriction levels will restrict the fun too much, we will move quiz night to a host-at-home format (see Plan B). However, if we can Quiz at school, food and beverage will be BYO as usual for Quiz Night, and sharing on tables will be permitted (for example, if you order a pizza, your table group may share it, but do not share with other table groups). We will keep you updated via table captains about the mask-wearing situation and any other requirements (like how to access the gym amidst construction) should Plan A go ahead.

PLAN B

If restrictions are keeping us locked to our tables, we’ll host Quiz Night online. You can host your table at home, where you can be a bit more casual and free to move around. Order Uber Eats, or host a bottle-and-plate or a pot luck – up to you! We’ll send your table captain details about how to log-in for the quiz, and how to participate in fundraising and games. We’d still love you to get into the 20s theme as we’ll check-in with each other online through the night!

PLAN C

If we are in lockdown, what better way to spend a night than at home, quizzing away! It may just be you and the special people in your household, but it’ll be a fun way to pass the time! We’ll email you the details about how to log-in for the quiz, and how to participate in fundraising and games. And go on, get dressed-up for it and make it fabulous!
We hope you join us to have some fun at our 20s Quiz Night!

FUNDRAISING

Quiz Night is a lot about the fun, but also a lot about raising money! The School is undergoing lots of change at the moment, and part of this is to create a new upper years outdoor space in the area north of the canteen (historically referred to as “Beryl’s Garden”). To raise funds to redevelop this area, we will be raising funds by:

PRIZES

Regardless of how Quiz Night goes ahead, we will still be awarding prizes for Best Dressed (male and female), Best Table Decorations and, of course, the Quiz Night winner!
