Readers' Cup


Each year Mitchelton State School invites upper school students to participate in the annual Readers' Cup.  The Readers' Cup is organised by the Children's Book Council of Australia and is a state wide competition for young readers.  Teams of four students read a pre-selected set of 4-5 books.  Each team competes with other schools to answer quiz questions from these books.

The Regional competitions are held towards the end of Term 2 each year, with the State finals being held during the Brisbane Writers' Festival in September. Students spend several months before the competition reading the books and developing sets of questions to help each other understand the books in greater depth.  The Librarian and Library Aide assist the students and accompany the students to the Readers' Cup competition. 

The Readers' Cup is a fabulous way to challenge students to read a wide selection of books.  It also teaches the students to work collaboratively in teams as well as developing a love of reading.
