THE teachers, doctors and pop stars of the future gathered at East Hampshire District Council’s schools’ quiz.

The annual event was attended by pupils, including from Bordon’s Mill Chase Academy, councillors and council staff with 70 taking part. The theme this year was “when I grow up” and included question rounds about history, sports and general knowledge.

Six teams were created from schools and youth groups across the district, with a district councillor or two in each. As well as pupils from Mill Chase, students from Bohunt School in Liphook, The Petersfield School and Ditcham Park (Petersfield) took part.

Trophies and prizes were awarded for the highest scores and the best costumes, and on-the-spot prizes were given for the best singing and dancing at the event.

Julie Butler, portfolio holder for customer services, said: “Every year this event is a big hit and this year was no exception.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to interact with their local councillors and to get to know a little more about a theme.

“This year’s theme created ample conversation starters about hopes and dreams, and it was a great to see so many young people who are passionate about the future.”
