Readers’ Chevron Cup: Semi-Final
As part of the Emirates Literature Festival, eight avid Year 9 readers competed in the semi-final of the Readers’ Chevron Cup on Tuesday 16th January. The competition was fierce with over 600 teams from across Dubai taking part. Students were required to become experts in four novels and have worked extremely diligently in preparation since Term 1. Both teams went into the exam room composed and confident, despite the little preparation time that they were given. We are patiently awaiting the results of the round and hope to make it to the UAE finals in March. Watch this space!
