Thank you to all bookworms who participated in the annual Nile Academy reading fair on Friday, April 1st. Our homeroom teachers also deserve special thanks for helping organize the fair and assess students. We couldn’t have done it without you!
Our special panel of judges included TDSB Trustee Christopher Mammoliti, Nile Academy Academic Advisor Dr. Liliana Vani, and Nile Academy alumni Reyhan Balikci. With over 90 students from grades 1 through 7 participating in the fair, our judges had a wonderful time listening to the adventures student took on their reading journey. The judges evaluated students on their ability to convey the plot, theme, conflict, and resolution in their chosen book.
To make the reading fair more engaging and entertaining for the participants, we asked students to show off their costume design and originality. Many students went all out with their costumes; we had students dress up as characters from Wonder, the Secret Garden, Joss, Goldilocks, and The Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Students made sure to give it their all when presenting, spoke clearly, stood tall, and engaged with the judges.
After careful consideration, the winners of Nile Academy’s annual reading fair have been selected. While it was challenging to choose an overall winner, our judges carefully evaluated each student’s presentation skills, costume design, and board originality to determine those who stood out.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Humber River-Black Creek MPP Tom Rakocevic for visiting our school and hearing our Grade 7 students’ presentations. We truly appreciate your support and feedback.
The Nile Academy reading fair winners will be announced Thursday, April 14th, during the morning assembly. We hope to see you all next year!
