Farewell for Victoria Brice – 17 March 2022

Big farewell for Victoria from our Wellington team who is heading overseas for her OE after five years at H2R


2021 H2R Team Quiz Challenge

22 August 2021 – (The Thursday before the nationwide Level 4 lockdown)

It was great to see a full capacity turnout of 150 people at the 2021 Quiz night in the Ballroom at Fox Glove after a year of Covid lockdowns prevented the 2020 challenge from taking place.  It was a great atmosphere with fierce competition between the best brains in Wellington.  The 2021 Champions were Summerset aka “Our drinking team has a trivia problem” who finally broke The Treasury’s two year winning streak.  Summerset donated their $300 Good Registry Voucher to Kids Can.  Following close behind in second place were PAMU aka “Pamoo“, who donated their $200 Good Registry Voucher to the Mental Health Foundation.  Bringing up the tail end were Heritage Lifecare’s “League of Extraordinary Guessors” who donated their $100 voucher to the SPCA.  Most Creative team name went to “Show me the Monet” (Ministry of Education).

2019 H2R Team Quiz Challenge

The 2019 Annual Quiz Team Challenge was a great success with a bigger venue needed for the larger number of teams and participants. We had 12 teams from various public and private sector organisations who battled it out in a furious and interactive quiz session. Top honours for a second year running goes to The Ministry of Trivia aka The Treasury/DPMC. It came down to the wire with On-Ya-Bike (NZTA) finishing a very close second and Fun Police (Vehicle Testing New Zealand) third. The award for Most Creative Team Name went to Quiztina Aguilera (MPI). Well done to all teams! We hope to see you next year for the 2020 Challenge!
