A competition was held in March to choose this year’s Readers Cup students. The Readers Cup is a reading competition designed for Year 9 students. Teams of four students and one reserve read a set of six books, and then compete with other school teams to answer quiz questions from these books. This challenges students to read widely, work collaboratively in a team, and continue developing a love of reading. It was a very close contest with several tie-breaks needed to choose our final team member.

Congratulations to the 2023 team, Alston Huang, George Xu, Jewel Zhang, Shuhan Zhang, and Yixuan Liu, who will represent Rangitoto College against other Auckland schools next term. Thank you to Leigh Meggison for helping organise this and to all the students who tried out for the team.
