On Monday 24th October, The British School of Beijing (BSB)  ‘Battle of the Books’ competitors took part in the first round of the competition, here at BSB.  The Battle of the Books is a wonderful and fun competition for those with a love for reading.  This year we have more keen readers than we have ever had, with lots of nervous new competitors, competing alongside some of our more experienced members.

Our teams competed against other teams from Harrow, Dulwich, Beijing World Youth Academy, YCIS, LFIP and the Deutsche Botschaftsschule Peking (German Embassy School). Despite the nerves our 2 teams really worked together to answer the questions. The scoring was extremely close with them landing a respectable 6th and 9th place.   

The excitement after the competition was wonderful to see and there were big smiles on all our competitors’ faces.  I have extremely high hopes for this year’s teams as we head towards the second of four rounds.  Sadly we will be losing some of our members as they move on to pastures new, I wish them all the best of luck and thank them for all their hard work.  It’s been a pleasure to have you in the team, however brief it may have been.
