Battle of the Books 2017/2018

Battle of the books is an exciting extra- curricular event for students in grades 4 to 8. Those who wish to participate are required to read ten novels and to practice answering questions about those books. The book release date is near the end of October and the students have until February to read all the books. After that the teams practice and get ready for the big competition day in early April. On that day a junior and senior team compete against other schools by answering questions about the novels. Students enjoy the friendly competition and get enthused about reading.
