CHINA FINAL

This was the biggest and best China Final to date. Teams flew in from Beijing, Nanjing, Guangzhou and of course the local schools from Shanghai. Concordia International School of Shanghai kindly billeted all of the children. Eight new teams participated this year. The competition was closer and tougher than ever but the International School of Beijing won both first and third place. What was impressive was that the winning team were all year sixes. Concordia International School of Shanghai was second.
Book prizes were sponsored by Scholastic China and Bayard Presse donated subscriptions to their magazine Discovery Box and Shanghai Book Traders kindly supplied the branded T-shirts. Food for all our hungry readers today was supplied by Subway Shanghai Co.
The whole event was very slickly organised.
A great day
Wayne

Dear Mr. Mills,
Could you consider inviting the
2nd placed teams from all the regions for the final. I really want to meet Mr. Mandela.
