“We are delighted to receive this accolade for our Primary school and the creative Year 6 team who put their collaborative talents into creating the storyline and illustrations,” said Mr Rob Verreynne, Principal of King’s Christian College Pimpama.  King’s Pimpama has been participating in the event since 2017, shortly after it first opened in 2016.  

“At King’s, we aim to give every student opportunities to do their best and be their best. Participating in these events also adds credit to our recent Naplan 2022 results which saw King’s students achieve well above the state and national averages in every category and in every year level.”

“Our exceptional teachers love to promote the Write a Book in a Day competition and we had teams from Years 4, 5 and 6 submit entries.  We are extremely proud of this year’s winning Year 6 team as some of the team members were also a part of the 2021 team who took out the best book National Champions accolade”  said Mr Verreynne.

Well done to everyone involved.
