Battle of the books

You’ve heard of battles of the bands, but what about battle of the books.

In a bid to boost literacy, youngsters battled it out by reading and learning from a number of books. Students from all over the island took part in a competition whose organizers believe when it comes to learning, you can’t beat a good book.

“Well, we believe that raising the literacy levels of students across the Cayman Islands will help in their development and their productivity as future citizens; that literacy is the cornerstone to a good quality education for every child,” said Marilyn Conolly from LIFE Cayman.

“Literacy is very important, I mean that’s our grounding really in education.  I mean you can’t really do much without actually learning to read,  I  mean it’s very important and it takes you to further steps, to jobs, to academia and it’s also enjoyment,” said Paul Robinson, Cayman Islands Information Professionals.

The battle of the books is an annual event held by the Cayman Islands Information Professionals. The event is named after Lera Parchment who was an avid reader and a big supporter of libraries. The winners of the senior division were the Cayman Prep Demi-Gods. The winners of the Junior Division were the St. Ignatius Hagrid beards and the George Town primary school Aslans.
