Last week 18 students in Years 8 and 9 participated in the Tablelands Friendly Reader’s Cup to prepare for the Cairns Regional Final
This year Malanda State High School has 5 teams of students dedicated to reading the 6 titles in the CBCA Reader’s Cup competition. At the recent practice afternoon Malanda High students were awarded with 3rd place and equal 4th place which bodes well for the Cairns Regional Final. The main objective of this competition is to foster a love of reading by promoting quality Young Adult literature. All of the students have read the books and agree that they have enjoyed reading beyond their usual range of literature and that they have discovered new genres and authors for future reading.
