Let Battle Commence

The gloves are off with the return of the Battle of the Books.

The annual reading competition, which sees students pitted against staff in a battle of literary skill, will be launched on World Book Day - March 3rd.

Individuals are partnered up (one member of staff versus one student) and given the same book to read; they must then compile a list of questions on their book and quiz each other.  

With Principal Andrew Campbell (pictured) leading the fighting talk, a call-to-arms has been made to ensure students give staff a run for their money.

Librarian Amy McKay said: "The staff team have won for the past two years, so the students have a grudge to settle this year."

Competitors of all abilities are welcome.
