Liston College Navigation

Readers Cup

On Wed 21 June, two teams of Y9 Liston students took part in the West Auckland Readers Cup Regional competition at Te Manawa Library.

Readers Cup is a quiz in which teams have to answer questions about 6 set texts that they have read over the term.

This is the first time that we have entered this competition for a number of years, so we were a little unsure of what to expect.

The questions are hard, detailed and there was a short time frame to answer them.

it was a close competition that came down to two tie breaker rounds. While we didn't place, our teams did well, placing 6th and 8th out of 12 teams. The points difference between the winning team and ours was small. 

Well done Readers Cup teams!

Participants in the two teams are:

Back row l-r  :  Cooper Ballard, Liam France, Melchi Alfante, Max Walton-Hannay, Nate Lord Front row l-r : Maatthulan Senthilkumar, Jayden Willy, Carlo Smith, Lucas Hu, Hugo Dai
