Curry and Quiz Night – Saturday 22nd April from 6pm
We would like to invite you all to our third Casual Night of the year. Please join us for a Curry and Quiz. For those of you who don’t know, the Quiz is not an official test set by school for parents to pass....it is a relaxed, enjoyable evening where you sit at a table with a group of people and answer a bunch of general knowledge questions. The questions could range from anything to do with ‘music in the 80’s’ to ‘who was the first person to climb Mt Everest’. Just anything really. But the most important thing about a Quiz is that it’s FUN!!!!
It is hosted by a Quizmaster who leads us through the questions. This time it will be our very own Mike Embley (Regional Director for Nord Anglia). We also have everyone’s favourite Curry chef, Payal Thakurani, to come in and sell us some of her delicious delights. This is not included in the price, so please don’t forget to bring some money for dinner.
If you would like to join us you can organise your own table, OR you can email us with your name and we will put you on a table. It’s a great way to meet other NAIS parents and make new friends. Tables work as a team to come up with an answer to each question. Each table then submits all their answers and then a winner or loser is determined.
So...now is the time to book your table. Following are the details in summary:
- The Quiz will be at NAIS, C Block, in the Hub (student’s cafeteria)
- Doors open at 6pm
- Entry fee is 50 RMB per person
- Curry can be bought and served from chef Payal....this is not included in the
entrance fee, so don’t forget to bring some money
- The quiz will start around 7:30pm
- Bring your own beer/wine/alcohol
- Tables can fit 8-10 people
- EITHER, organise your own table and email the table name and number of persons on it to us. OR, send us your name(s) and we will assign you to a table.
- We are welcoming friends of all NAIS parents, so gather a few to join you on your table
- 1st Prize is up for grabs.....so is the Wooden Spoon!
Now is the time to book your tables!!!!! Email us on email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
