Graad 7 Leeskompetisie
Eight of our very best Grade 7 pupils tested their reading skills at Herbert Hurd’s annual Grade 7 Afrikaans Leeskompetisie. Afrikaans background music set the tone as the Grade 7 learners were leading in. Competitors and supporters alike enjoyed “Skwiek” by Jaco Jabobs: a spy-themed book about the hamster that uses his hypnotic powers to cause all sorts of trouble in the human world. We were very honoured to have Mrs Charleine Olivier, an experienced librarian and poet, as judge. After a tension-filled competition, Sachin Terblanche walked away with the trophy and an Exclusive Books voucher to the value of R200. A big thank you to Exclusive Books Walmer Park for their continued support of this reading initiative for the last three years. Congratulations to all the participants who made it to the final round and a big thank you to all the parents who supported their children on the day!
