Readers Cup Gold Coast

A very exciting night was had on Tuesday 2nd June by the Year 6 Readers Cup team, Eden, Rachel, Banjo, Destan and Tadhg. Teams from 26 schools across the Gold Coast met at Hillcrest Christian College to compete for the Readers Cup Gold Coast title.  They sat through five gruelling rounds of questions and were required to converse and then record their answers all within 30 seconds.  At the end of the night, the scores were very close but Caningeraba State School took out first prize
Each student received a $25 gift voucher to spend at Symonds Books and a personal trophy and certificate.  There is also a large trophy that will be kept in the administration building of our school for the year.  Now, our team moves onto State Finals in September, representing our region for yet another fierce and raging battle on the forefront of literature.
Our wonderful team of students worked very hard over the course of the term, reading and studying five books in depth.  They deserve much praise for their diligence and focus.  This was an extra demand over and above their normal school work.
Well done team Caningeraba for the win.  Good luck at State Finals!
