Battle of the Books 

Each year, the Niagara District Christian Schools compete in a "Battle of the Books." The Junior Team is made up of students in grades 4-6, and the Senior Team is made up of students in grades 7 & 8. Each member reads a selection of eight books. In the Spring, the school teams come together in a competition to determine who has the most knowledge about the eight selected books.
