A great day for the St Kevin's Readers' Cup Team

Congratulations to the St. Kevin’s Readers’ Cup team: Jessica Kay, Ella Patchett, Elley Searle, Kathryn Townson, Naomi Tshamala and Hannah Weston for their terrific efforts in the competition this year. We had a fantastic morning on Wednesday at Hilder Road State School, The Gap, competing against 23 other schools. In preparation for the competition the team had been reading and discussing 5 selected books for several months, meeting at breaks, and asking each other questions about the books.
 
The Readers’ Cup was challenging and lots of fun, and the team did very well. A highlight of the morning was meeting Karen Foxlee, the author of Ophelia and The Marvellous Boy, one of the books we read for the competition. She was a very entertaining speaker and it was great to hear her talk about her writing experiences, from the first story she wrote when she was a small child to her recent published fantasy novels.
