Parent power proved too strong for the senior leadership team at St Thomas More Catholic School as mums and dads dominated their annual fund raising quiz.

From the 24 teams entered not one, not two, not three, but four teams of parents produced better scores than the Willenhall's senior leadership team who trailed in fifth.

The quiz was set by teacher Dan O'Connor who had to pick questions to fit all age groups and interests. He said: “Questions ranged from: What is the Chemical symbol for gold? Where was the Greyhound Derby held this year? and Where does Fireman Sam live?”

The £700 raised on the night means the Friends of St Thomas More have now amassed over £5,000 which will enable the Willenhall faith school to build a peace garden to honour their fallen heroes in front of the school on Darlaston Lane

In case you were still wondering the answers are au, Wimbledon and Pontypandy.
