The Riverside School Latin Club travelled to Phillips Exeter Academy on April 15 to compete in a full day of Classical Contests. Events included but were not limited to a Certamen (a trivia contest),  Olympika (a chariot race and gladiatorial combat) and a costume contest (dressing up as a character from classical mythology or ancient history). Henry & Waverly Griffin from Danville, Liam Markey from Peacham, Phoebe Barrett from Westmore, Alexa Counter from Barnet, and Katie Lyon from Waterford represented The Riverside School and we are all so proud of their efforts in winning the novice division of Certamen and the costume contest.
