Prep - Kowloon Bay: Prep Battle of the Books

Emily Wong 設計的 Prep Battle of the Books 2023-2024


HK Battle of the Books is a live school-on-school battle to find the book trivia champion school.

The competition is open to international primary and international secondary schools, as well as local primary and secondary schools through a special modified section.

The Battle of the Books programme was introduced to Hong Kong international schools in 1999. Since this time, it has grown significantly. In 2009, a "modified" competition was added, comprising 12 titles, rather than the usual 20, for local schools.

At Kellett Prep, this is offered as an ECA open to Years 5 and 6 students who meet weekly to participate in activities based on each of the 20 selected titles.  Students read each book on their own time at their own pace and as many as they are able to.  A team of consisting of 6 students from either campus make up Kellett's team of 12 who move on to compete at the semi-finals against other participating international schools in HK.  

Battle of the Books is designed to introduce students to a variety of reading material, build teamwork skills, and ensure that reading is fun.
