Jono: “Can I borrow the car? I’ve got a History thing.”

Me: “What History thing?”

Jono: “A quiz thing. A History quiz. I don’t know.”

Mum: ” You can borrow the car if you win.”

Jono: (rolls eyes) “OK, whatever.”

Not only did they win the Canterbury Schools History Cup but by a record-breaking margin. The team that got second was almost 40 points behind them.  Jono got to bring the Cup home because he had a car. The other two didn’t want to risk it on the bus.

They’re very proud of their History Cup. It was pulled from the earthquake rubble of a fallen school and it’s dents, wonky stem and sellotaped-together base only add to the historical appeal of this prize. The History Cup is a survivor too.
