Last Friday Scotch Oakburn hosted the Northern Secondary Schools’ Readers’ Cup competition run by the Australian School Library Association in conjunction with the Children’s Book Council. Readers’ Cup promotes interest in reading and children’s literature. Contestants work in teams to read 7 set books, compete in a quiz about the books and each team then presents a timed creative response to at least three of the set books.
Scotch Oakburn was well represented by Elise Kingston, Ebony Richardson, Gina Kumar, Rafe Addison-Hall and Olive Kwan. They put in a solid performance, placing third. Thanks to Carrie Dunham for coordinating and mentoring the Scotch Oakburn team through to the Finals.
