Boys Compete At Dulwich College Literacy Competition

Pic 3A massive well done to our students who participated in the annual literacy competition at Dulwich College yesterday, run by Children's Writers and Illustrators for Stories and Literacy (CWISL).

CWIZZ is a fun literary competition designed to bring together students in a celebration of books and reading. The competition consisted of five themed rounds:

  • Characters, clothes and props
  • Fantastical transport (for which HBAED scored a perfect 10/10!)
  • Book covers from different angles
  • Sensational schools in books
  • Myths and monsters

Questions ranged from 'How does Alex travel in the classic picture book Where The Wild Things Are?', to 'Which country has the largest population of moose?'. Ms Kiem knew both answers!


Well done to our teams

Pic 1We didn't win but there was a fantastic effort from our boys and we congratulate them all.

Year 7

  • Alfie
  • Joshua
  • Arran
  • Keanu

Year 8

  • Theodore 
  • David 
  • James 
  • George

All the boys selected a free book, with Christian Darkin’s books Shark Girl and Land of Monsters being the most popular. Theodore and George also won stationery prizes in the unexpected raffle!


Between rounds there were chances to win exciting prizes, meet authors, and hear “one-minute reads” from their books. Authors included Sarah Mussi, Mo O’Hara, Karen Owen and Catherine Randell.

Thank you to Dulwch College for hosting and providing fine biscuits and muffins, and congratulations to Colfe's too, who were the winners.

Thank you to Mr Butterworth and Mr Cooper for driving us there and back, and to Ms Lukic, Ms Morton and Ms Butler for their organisation and support. And a huge thank you to Mr Delaney and Ms Kiem for taking the lead and ensuring our boys were ready for this great event.
