On the evening of Wednesday 30th November 2016 the pupils at Furnace Primary School took on the “grown-ups” in the first ever ” Pupils v Grown-Ups Furnace Community Quiz” organised by Mike Masters of Furnace Community Council and Furnace Primary Head Teacher Robyn McIlroy.
With questions ranging from Picasso to flags of Europe, the pupils quickly took the lead. To be fair the grown-ups faced ever so slightly harder questions, including identifying flags of Azerbaijan and global politics. The grown-ups team had recovered slightly by the last round of charades but nonetheless the pupils were the clear victors with a score of 47 to 21. The St Andrew’s theme included shortbread (made by school cook Miss Rhona) and irn-bru. A raffle raised over £100 for school funds. A fun night was had by all, and as Mike Masters confirmed in her vote of thanks at the end of the evening, the quiz was a fantastic example of school and community integration.
