Congratulations to our students who won 'Best Book' in the national Write a Book in a Day competition. They wrote and illustrated a 5000 word book in 12 hours and raised over $1000 for children's cancer research.
Our student team Noveltea
were announced the winners for Victoria/South Australia and Tasmania in the Older Readers category.
This year's national competition had 1007 teams and 7637 writers and all books were published for children who are undergoing treatment in hospitals throughout Australia.
This was the first year that Box Hill High School participated and we had seven teams and 45 writers and illustrators who took part from Year 7-11.
We're very proud of our students, who achieved this online and remotely, during the Stage 4 Lockdown period of a Global Pandemic!
We hope this is the start of what will be an annual event on our school calendar.Winners AnnouncementLink to stories and student reflections
