Everyone loves a competition! So when we announced the ‘Guess the number of pages’ competition during Book Week in our senior campus library, there was a rush to check out the bundle of books locked in the display cabinet in the entrance foyer of the GFL. Withstanding the stream of ‘clarifying questions’ constantly thrown at our Library Staff was tough, but in the end students relied on advice from each other.
Stunned by his victory, Year 12 student Joe Sokiransky was given the honour of removing the hefty bundle of books from the cabinet. Runner up, and second prize winner, Galina Enright of Year 7, was thrilled to receive two movie pass vouchers. The third place winner Jake Berthelot of Year 9 won a single movie pass voucher.
For the record, there were 20 books in the bundle with a total of 6,245 pages!
