Bendigo Bank Readers' Cup champion teams for 2016

Reading was ultimate winner when the annual Bendigo Bank Readers’ Cup finals were staged last week.

Right through May and June, Noosaville State School students representing their classes have participated in a competition where a selection of books are read and then a series of questions were asked in front of adjudicators. The Readers’ Cup competition challenges students to read widely, work collaboratively in their class teams and continue developing a love of reading.

In a graded, knock-out format, more than 70 students from Years 2-6 competed in 3 age groups (years 2-3, 4-5 and 6) where teams answered a number of questions from selected books. The winning three teams answered the most questions directly. The concept has been a proven to be a real hit with students of all ages and a fun way to inspire reading with a little competitiveness between the classes. It also ensured all children at Noosaville State School see the fun in reading.  
Co-ordinator and teacher, Sandi Brechbuhl said the Readers’ Cup popularity grows from strength to strength each year it’s held.
“This all began in 2009 and the kids have really embraced the Readers’ Cup again in this, its eighth year. We thank the Tewantin Community Bank branch of Bendigo Bank for their financial support of this event,” Mrs. Brechbuhl said.
“The students and teachers have worked really hard and had a very enjoyable past few weeks. Reading is such an important part of all our lives and this event has become an integral part of Noosaville’s focus on academic success and enjoyment.
“Having classes involved in the competition creates a culture of reading in our classrooms. Students were selected based on their involvement in classroom reading and many wanted to make the team,” she added.
Tewantin Community Bank’s Kerri Wright was on hand last week to present classes 3CS, 5P and 6M(1) with their trophies and said the bank is delighted about its continued involvement with Readers’ Cup and Noosaville State School.
“It’s just an extension of the great relationship between Noosaville State School and our branch. It’s a wonderful competition for us to support and we look forward to doing it all again in 2017,” Kerri shared.
