The North Shore Readers’ Cup

The North Shore Reader’s Cup was contested by 10 school teams of keen readers. All had read the same six books multiple times over the last term answering many test questions. Rangitoto College hosted the competition, the fourth year it has been held for Year 9 students. There was a real buzz in the room with lots of parents, family and friends supporting the teams. This year was a very close fought battle with Rangitoto College taking out the cup. Our students enjoyed the event, and after an initial nervousness, Kitty Todd said she “was surprised at how much fun it was and how friendly the other contestants were”. Year 8 students keep an eye out for the opportunity to trial for the team at the beginning of 2020!
