Here is Port Al­fred High School’s ‘Read­ing in Un­usual Places’ win­ners

Talk of the Town - - News -

The annual Read­ing in Un­usual Places com­pe­ti­tion held by Port Al­fred High School was an­other great suc­cess and en­cour­aged pupils through­out the school to en­gage more with read­ing and books.

The com­pe­ti­tion was ini­ti­ated in 2017 by the late Bev McLel­lan, a mother fig­ure at PAHS who passed away sud­denly ear­lier in 2018.

“It is a priv­i­lege to keep the com­pe­ti­tion go­ing in her name,” said the school’s head of mar­ket­ing Laura Guest.

En­tries were from across var­i­ous age groups and once again de­liv­ered the weird, the won­der­ful and the whacky. Laela Can­non in grade 3 took top hon­ours across the board with a win­ning photo of her read­ing a book un­der an um­brella in the shower.

Bar­gain Books Rose­hill were once again the main spon­sors and the win­ners were de­lighted to re­ceive vouch­ers as well as goodie bags spon­sored by the PAHS Sup­port­ers and Alumni As­so­ci­a­tion.

These were pre­sented at a re­cent school as­sem­bly. Plans are un­der­foot for a new twist to the com­pe­ti­tion in 2019. OPEN 1st – Chloe Cox 2nd – Juaro French 3rd – Liam Can­non GRADES 1 – 3 GIRLS 1st – Laela Can­non 2nd – Tasha Marais 3rd – El­iz­a­beth Hen­der­son GRADES 1 – 3 BOYS
