Last Friday’s MHA Curry and Musical Quiz Evening was a great success and a coming together of parents, teachers and staff from all departments. Mr Cousins played the piano for two theme tune rounds from films and musicals. We enjoyed snippets from Star Wars, Schindler’s List, Frozen and Carousel. Mr Neill skilfully compered, assisted by Mrs Twaites and Mrs Standen who brought great fun and laughter to the evening.

Mrs Standen wrote a History of Moira House round as it is the School’s 140th Anniversary this year. It was very special to hear the School song being played, and I am pleased to report that I could remember the words after 30 years!

Mrs Twaites wrote a General Knowledge round and there was a definite temptation on some tables to reach for their mobile phones, of course with Mrs Standen present temptation was resisted.

A special thanks must go to Janette Dobbins (MHA secretary) for organising the evening with me, Sharon McDavitt for co-ordinating the curry and K2 curry for supplying the curry. Thank you to MHA helpers Chiu Lin, Jackie and Alan Gander and also to Mr Frank Schulmeyer for his super lighting and background music!

We are grateful to have raised £192 on the raffle and would like to thank those who donated prizes in appreciation of their kindness:

Ken Barlow of Deans Place Hotel

Chui Lin of The Cumberland Hotel

A very pleasing £749 was raised for MHA which we shall spend on the students.

Our warmest thanks to all parents who supported the event and made it a memorable evening. Our next event will be a little more energetic: a Rounders match in the Summer term.
