Mount girls really enjoy judging historical fiction

After several years of entering this competition, with some success, Mount historians were delighted to be asked to help with the shortlisting process for this year’s competition.  The girls read over 50 very varied stories from students in Years 7-9 from all over the country.  They took very seriously their role and worked hard to assess plot, characterisation and sense of period.  After much reading, discussion and re-reading, a shortlist was put to the HA.  We are really grateful to the HA for this opportunity for the girls to assess so many stories – a great learning opportunity for them!
