The Year 7 Battle of the Books teams have been in training for eight weeks and the students have shown an impressive commitment to this ECA.
Each team is led by Year 12 students from the same house and they support the Year 7s with their reading, consolidating their knowledge of the books and preparing for the competition. This week, Year 7 took part in their first mock battle, run by the Year 12 BOB leaders. The results were:
Da Vinci Vs. Einstein – Einstein won
Fleming Vs. Nansen – Fleming won
Rutherford Vs. Wilberforce – Rutherford won
The next mock battle will take place after the Christmas holiday and the teams will continue preparing for the Inter-house competition that will take place in May during Book Week.
