Year 8 Readers' Cup - 2016
Our Year 8 Readers Cup team experienced a fierce night of competition at the Sunshine Coast Regional Readers Cup held Immanuel Lutheran College. Our team: Bakani Kombanie, Patrick McKenzie, Madeleine Roulston and Steffini Twidale, formed a strong alliance, taking on the challenge of reading 6 books and working collaboratively to answer the fast-paced questions on the night.
Narrowly missing a place in the final, they came away with a great sense of achievement, enjoyed the camaraderie of the evening and in particular loved the opportunity to hear the inspirational guest speaker – Lynette Noni.
All six books for the competition are available for loan from our College Library. 'Trash' is also available to borrow from our eBook collection.
Lynette Noni is a vibrant new author based on the Sunshine Coast, who is enjoying acclaim for her new series: The Medoran Chronicles. Her first book in the series, Akarnae, was featured as one of the books in this year’s Sunshine Coast Regional Competition. If the reaction of the audience is anything to go by, Noni’s books will be very popular and she’s bound to be in high demand as a guest author.
