Contest Time – Excellent Reads

On Friday, February 16, 2024 form 6 and 9 students read their prepared texts on stage at Trave-Gymnasium.

Not only audience and judges were immensely impressed, also our native speaker Shannon as host claimed that she admired our readers‘ sovereignty and interpretation skills.

Still debatable is whether our school dog Luna enjoyed the part with the dead dog from the novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon, but all in all our second Reading Contest had been a great success.

Congratulations to every single participant and lots of thanks to every helping hand. The judges definitely had more than hard decisions to make.

Finally, our two form 6 teams – Livia / Mikka (6c) and Leon / Theo (6a) – and our single form 9 readers – Skander (9a) and Yasmin (9b) – have qualified for the next round on Friday, March 8, 2024. Then CaJaBu (Carl-Jacob-Burckhardt-Gymnasium) students will come to us in order to compete in the finals – we are looking forward to having them in the house. Fingers crossed!
