On Thursday 13 June, five Year 8 students represented State High in the District Readers' Cup Competition. Jacob Fahmi, Zoe Cartwright, Laura Gough, Kaitlyn Yim and Rachel Yang competed against 20 other schools at St Joseph's Nudgee College in a battle for literacy supremacy.
The competition consisted of five rounds of 10 questions which covered content from five prominent Young Adult novels. Our team performed admirably, placing 6th and only trailing the winners by 11 points. The team worked hard in the 10 weeks leading up to the competition, reading all five novels over the last school holidays, composing questions on their favoured books and meeting weekly this term to memorise the books' content. Well done, team!
