TOP PATRONS OF THE MONTH Dear schoolmates, You may have heard of our 'Battle of the Books' team, whether through eClass, announcements, or the activities. However, do you know what they actually do? Each year, the Hong Kong Battle of the Books committee will organise the Battle of the Books competition: in the competition, participants will have to answer questions based on the books that they had read before the competition. Our school send out a team annually, and although they have not won thst place in the past [fat check needed], all the members enjoyed the experience immersely. If you would like to know more about the team and their weekly meetings, read on in this issue! Happy reading!

the Battle of the Books!

The HK Battle of the Books competition was introduced since 1999. It is a live schoolon-school battle about reading trivia, designed to encourage reading, develop teamwork skills, and expose themselves to different varieties of books. Our school is not an exception to joining this competition, and if you are F1-F3, with an interest for approaching different writing genres and a knack for trivia, then consider signing up for the Battle of the Books group!
