ST CLERES SCHOOL TRIUMPH AT THURROCK CRIME PREVENTION PANEL QUIZ
Quiz masters from St Cleres School were crowned champions in the 18th annual Thurrock Crime Prevention Panel School quiz.
Organised by the Thurrock Crime Prevention Panel – Paul Clancy from Prestige Conjuring, Essex Fire and Rescue’s Tony Howard, Neil Brand from Essex Police, Jenny Meads from Thurrock Libraries, Colin Ellis from Train Excel and Jenny Pugh a retired teacher and resident of Thurrock – the quiz had a mixture of questions from general knowledge, sport, media and crime and safety awareness, including criminal damage, fire and road safety.
St Cleres, Eggheads team just pipped Triple G team from The Grays School to the post, winning by 4points.
Paul Clancy said, “Every year the quiz gets better and better largely due to the hard work of the Thurrock Crime Prevention Panel but also to those who help on the night and of course the schools who take part. This year the quiz could have gone to any one of the teams right to the last round making it a very exciting finish indeed.”
The event at Thurrock Civic Hall was hosted by Thurrock Police Schools’ Liaison Officer Neil Brand. Sponsors included the Thurrock Community Safety Partnership; Chair Superintendent Ivor Harvey handed out the prizes of Lakeside vouchers.
Superintendent Harvey said: “As a partnership we are proud to be associated with such a lively and enjoyable evening which offered the opportunity to share valuable information with young people and help keep them safe.”
Other sponsors of the quiz included Essex Police, Thurrock Council’s Be Smart, Prestige Conjuring and Essex Fire and Rescue.
