The Hong Kong Battle of the Books is an annual inter-school reading competition which brings together students from schools in Hong Kong and China. Its objective is to expose students to quality children’s and young adult fiction and expand their reading horizons. The team displayed tremendous teamwork and scored 71 points in the final, bettering teams from Canadian International School of Hong Kong, Renaissance College, King George V School, and Island School. Members of this CCA meet weekly with advisors Mrs. Annie Tam and Mr. Brendan Kilbane and have shown tremendous improvement since the beginning of the school year. They were rewarded with a team trophy and will celebrate their accomplishment with a pizza party.
