WELCOME TO HK BATTLE OF THE BOOKS

HK Battle of the Books is a live school-on-school battle to find the book trivia champion school.

The competition is open to international primary and international secondary schools, as well as local primary and secondary schools through a special modified section.

The Battle of the Books programme was introduced to Hong Kong international schools in 1999. Since this time, it has grown significantly. In 2009, a "modified" competition was added, comprising 12 titles, rather than the usual 20, for local schools.

Battle of the Books is designed to introduce students to a variety of reading material, build teamwork skills, and ensure that reading is fun. 

Last year boasted the largest field yet, with a total of 104 teams registered for the 2016-17 competition.


CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 CHAMPIONS!
