How does the scoresheet work?
    Awards are given by pages read, not books read. Students will add up the cumulative total of pages they’ve read. 10 pages = 1 point. No picture books, no magazines or newspapers – only novels. Class novels count. Must be signed by parents to say they have read the books. Class captains and Form Seniors to keep track of points achieved and number of books read and send these details to the teacher librarians as students reach medal levels.

Who can win prizes?
Medals will be awarded to the top readers in each Form Class (team from a country) at a Year Level assembly.

Years 7 and 8

Gold Medal: 500 points or 5,000 pages Silver Medal: 400 points or 4,000 pages Bronze Medal: 300 points or 3,000 pages
Year 6

Gold Medal: 400 points or 4,000 pages Silver Medal: 300 points or 3,000 pages Bronze Medal: 200 points or 2,000 pages

The highest point scorers from each country and each team sport will win a trophy – gold, silver or bronze. These will be presented at a full Middle School assembly.
