Readers Cup

One of the great literary events our students have the opportunity to participate in each year is ReadersCup. Each school chooses students who have a love of reading and a competitive spirit to read five designated titles. At the competition, they then answer questions about these books during six rounds. This year saw twenty-seven teams excitedly competing at Moreton Bay College.
 
Our Year 6 team this year included Eli Bensley, Imogen Clarke, Isabella Miller, Allegra-Jane Morgan and Emma Ralph. These students met every week for a term to share questions they had written about the books with the goal to be well prepared for the competition. During the tournament they collaborated capably as a team, proved they were well read and focussed on each question with diligence. Redlands College was represented admirably by our team.
 
The atmosphere was electric and it appeared all participants enjoyed themselves immensely. Congratulations to our team for their efforts.

Our Year 6 team included Eli BensleyImogen Clarke, Isabella Miller, Allegra-Jane Morgan and Emma Ralph.  The team had lots of fun at Readers Cup!

We were privileged to have Samantha Wheeler as our quizmaster. Samantha wrote one of the designated texts, Everything I've Never Said. It was a special treat for our students to meet Samantha as she has had a long term relationship with Year 6 at Redlands College, being a visiting author most years since her first novel was published. She has always been generous to us with her time and inspiration for our budding writers.

Co-Curricular Chess every Thursday afternoon in the Library

Redlands College is offering students from Grades 3 – 12 the opportunity to enjoy
the exciting game of chess as a co-curricular activity
. Playing chess can strengthen
problem solving skills; enhance memory and concentration; teach logical, critical and
sequential thinking; and demonstrate the importance of decision-making and
consequences. This will be run by a coach from Gardiner Chess and the students will
learn tactics and strategies as well as playing games. There may also be the
opportunity to represent the College at inter-school competitions throughout the year.
This activity will take place after school from 3.15 pm - 4.15 pm on Thursday afternoons in the Library.  Junior School Students will need to be collected by their parents from the library.
