The Sixth Form Challenge
On 7 February, two students, Catherine Osborne and Toby Sanderson organised 'The Sixth Form Challenge' at St George's College in the Orchard Hall.
Teams of Sixth Formers tried to find the answers to visual clues and questions on a range of topics from science, music and film to questions about St George's itself. The night was organised to raise money for The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, which focuses on mental health in teenagers, and it did just that, raising over £500 for the charity.
The Trust was set up in 1998 in memory of Charlie Waller, a young man who took his life while suffering from depression. Shortly after his death, his family founded the Trust to educate young people on the importance of staying mentally well and how to do so. Since then, the Trust has grown into an independent charity that works with partners in the health service, education and the private sector across the country.
Second and third prizes went to two Lower Sixth teams, while an Upper Sixth team took first prize with just one point in it. It was a great evening with a strong competitive spirit.
