June 4, 2012 - For the past two years, junior students at St. Anne School in Hanmer have been participating in an event called "The Battle of the Books". The competition is open to students from the different Sudbury Boards. The event helps encourage a love of reading by its participants. This year, the St. Anne Angels, under the direction of Sudbury Catholic Board teacher Denise Desmarais, took second place at "The Battle of the Books" competition that was held Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at the Radisson Hotel in Sudbury. The competition, which is an annual event organized by the Sudbury Public Library, requires students in grades four, five and six to read up to 30 books and then respond to questions about them. Throughout the school year, students read, meet, and discuss the selections that have been outlined to all students entered within the competition. This year, 15 schools from the Sudbury District entered the battle. The student team from St. Anne placed second in the event and were able to take home silver medals. Coach Denise Desmarais praised her team for their great effort and recognized that the final results between first and second place were very close. The staff and students at St. Anne are very proud of their "Battle of the Books" team and all of their hard work. Your enjoyment of reading has really opened up a world full of exciting stories and has sparked your interests for years to come. Way to go Angels!
