Each year, the Niagara District Christian Schools compete in a "Battle of the Books." The Junior Team is made up of students in grades 5-6, 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. This is a fun competitive day.
The competition for 2024 will take place at the beginning of April.
