On Thursday 14 June Redlands College fielded two teams in the Brisbane Bayside District Years 7 & 8 Readers Cup held at Moreton Bay College.  Both teams acquitted themselves well, with the Year 7 team coming in a close fourth with only 1.25 and 6.75 points separating them from third-place and first-place respectively.

Congratulations to both teams!

Year 7: Oran Cowan, Amber Frazer, Piper Lawson, Esther Messenger and Georgia Patterson

The Year 7 team's warm-up dance obviously helped them to compete well.

Looking back at Book Week 2017 - start planning for Book Week 2018!

Paddington Bear

Book week 2018 is on 18th - 24th August.  This years theme is ‘find your treasure’.  The date of the book parade will be announced later in the year however, it is never too early to start planning your costumes!  The costumes do not need to be elaborate, in fact, parents are encouraged to get their child involved in the planning and creating process.  Your child will feel more inclined to help if they are excited about the character they're dressing up as.  Stay tuned to this website...as over the next couple of weeks we'll be sharing some ideas to inspire you and we'll look back at previous book week characters and costumes.
