Our team of keen readers from our Secondary joined Mr. Robinson, Miss Richardson and fellow book lovers from across Hong Kong for the 2014 Battle of the Books Semi Final. This was the first time to attend the competition so they were all very nervous especially given the Mastermind like room where the event took place! They took part in four rounds against Harrow, Kellett, the Canadian International School and St Paul's Co-ed. The core team consisting of Valeria, Lucia, Charlie and Ryan with rotating assistance from Skylar, Suzy, Rebecca, Vivian, Andrew and Daniel.

While they were unable to move onto the next round, they did manage to win in one of the rounds against Harrow. More importantly, they shared their love of reading, made connections with other readers and had a great time. Well done!
