This year Wynberg sent 4 of its top readers to compete against other schools in the Battle of the Books competition - a competition held to celebrate Shakespeare's birthday and World Book day. Sponsored by Exclusive Books, it is a competition held once a year at the school of previous year’s winners and readers' knowledge from a wide range of sources is tests. Some of the quiz categories are Shakespeare, Modern Classics, Childhood Memories and Books Made Into Movies.
This year the quiz was held at Bergvliet High School and the team representing Wynberg Girls' High included Ashleigh Thompson (Grade 9), Nicole Wentzel (Grade 9), Shannon Ronaldson (Grade 12) and Amy Mackintosh (Grade 12). It was a closely contested competition and this year, the floating trophy was won by Springfield. Defending champions and host school came fourth, while Wynberg tied 6th out of 12 teams. It was a fabulous evening, filled with lots of giggles and fun and we look forward to competing again next year!
