Readers’ Cup 2019
On Wednesday 12 June, 5 students from Years 5 and 6 attended the Brisbane Central Regional Final of the CBCA Readers' Cup at Hilder Road State School. Approximately 25 schools in the area competed in this prestigious event. It was an exciting and highly enjoyable (although nerve-racking!) experience.
Our students worked hard to prepare for this event over the past few months. They were required to read 5 texts (whole books of varying lengths and genres). They did this (more than once!) and then met each week to test each other with questions about the books.
At the event, our students worked as a team to answer five rounds of questions. It came down to a tie breaker for 2nd place between TGSS and two other schools. Our team won the tie breaker and walked away with 2nd place!
We are so proud of their accomplishment and the massive effort they put in to achieve this result!
