That’s Classic!

Most definitely a Herculean feat, Year 13 students Ray Carr, Christina Stewart, and Emily Zhu represented Westlake’s only team for the annual Auckland Interschool Classics Quiz.

After being cancelled for the past two years due to Covid-19, Athena’s Agents placed third among 32 teams across Auckland, and scored one point off from second, which was awarded to St. Kentigern College. First place went to Auckland Grammar School. 

The quiz competition consisted of questions pertaining to different areas of Ancient Greece and Rome, including politics, society, literature, mythology, and contemporary links. 

Everybody enjoyed themselves and also learnt a lot! Omnes fruebantur et didicit multum!
