Congratulations to our Year 9 Readers’ Cup team the “Gobbledybooks.” The girls competed against 14 other schools on Tuesday June 11, at Maroochydoore State High and came 5th. The Gobbledybooks won their heat and were 1 point off getting into the finals. It was a great night of competition and the girls showed wonderful sportsmanship and skill.
Following the event, we received an email from one of the scorers addressed to GCCC staff, commending the girls on their attitude during their heat;
“I would just like to say how impressed I was with the team members who competed in the Reader’s Cup competition last night. I was a timekeeper in the room and I thought the team showed wonderful manners, courtesy, resilience and great sportsmanship. They were wonderful ambassadors for the school.”
What a wonderful commendation for the girls! They worked extremely hard during the term reading and memorising facts from 5 novels and the DVD version of Shaun Tan’s “The Lost Thing.” They shone brightly at the competition and showed amazing teamwork skills. I would like to say a huge thank you to the team and the way the girls juggled their studies with the Readers’ Cup workload.
Here is a list of the girls that competed in the Year 9 Readers’ Cup Team.
