Emirates Literature Festival

Today, as part of the Emirates’ Literature Festival, BIS Abu Dhabi played host to the Readers’ Cup Challenge. We welcomed 26 teams from 11 different schools in the hour long event which saw students doing their best to recall facts and information regarding novels they have recently enjoyed. All participants had read 4 books in preparation for today’s event, with different titles for English and Arabic speakers. Primary and Secondary Teams also had different texts to read. Firm favourites from the day were ‘The Parent Agency’ by David Baddiel for Primary students and ‘Pax’ by Sarah Pennypacker for Secondary students.

A huge congratulations to our own participating students who spent their Winter Break Holidays with their noses in books! Results will be announced in the coming weeks with the winning teams going on to represent their schools in the final round of the Challenge in Dubai in March. #EmiratesLitFest #ReadersCup
