Local team goes fourth

Local team goes fourth

By June Anderson

A Warrington School team succeeded in gaining fourth place in the
Otago round of the New Zealand Post Book Awards Quiz.

Miya El Dessouky, Ruby Harris and Florence Sorrel were given special
mention for their amazing effort against some of the larger schools
from Otago. They were the only team to get 10/10 in a round.

"I sat with a big smile on my face to see our team working together,
being excited and having fun," said Brenda Morrison, the teacher who
coached the team.

Warrington School's avid readers are often found huddled in cosy nooks
and sunny corners totally engrossed in their books. Piles of books are
brought into class after the Blueskin Bay Library book car visits.

Pupils are supplied with top quality books suited to their individual
needs and requests from the visiting book car and librarians.
