Latin students dine out at Classics Dinner
On Thursday 4 May, eight Year 11 Latin students attended the Classics Dinner, held at the Athenian Restaurant. There was a sumptuous feast of various Greek dishes, culminating with the famous lamb enjoyed by classics students from Newington, PLC and Ravenswood.
Prizes were awarded for best fancy-dress costume, as well as for high scorers in the Classics Quiz. Whilst not a symposium in the strictest sense of the word, there was at least a great deal of commensality and intermingling between students from many schools. Luckily, no slaves were poisoned whilst tasting the food and senators, gods and goddesses and soldiers alike made it home safely.
