Reading Challenge 2014 by the British Council along with the Reading Agency had yet another exciting and vibrant theme. The “Mythical Maze” explored the ancient myths of the world. As the Reading Challenge had always required – it was time for Mythical Maze participants from ages 7 to 15 to take up the challenge of reading 6 books within just 6 weeks. This challenge was done during the August school vacation and the participants also joined workshops held only for the Mythical Maze.
The British Council Library will celebrate the Reading Challenge’s successful and fun journey on a high. This celebration goes hand in hand with Children’s Day and the Mythical Maze participants are invited to join the event on 1 October 2014 accompanied by 1 parent, at 6.00 p.m. at the Library premises.
The evening will include
- Children’s author - Mrs. Prashani Rambukwella hosting a Book Reading session from her very own book, and also a fun skit.
- Cartoonist - Mr. Gihan de Chickera too will be a part of the evening where the participants will witness the magic of his free-hand cartoon drawing.
Every participant will receive a certificate and medal on completion of the challenge at the point of registration. The ten fastest readers of the two age groups (7-10 years and 11-15 years) will be presented with their certificate and gold medal on this day, and all other participants will be receiving honourable mentions along with medals and certificates for the completion of the challenge. The children will be in the company of their parents and esteemed invitees
