On 16th May 2016, the students in Y6, 7 and 8 of the French International School in Hong Kong voted for their favourite novel in the Prix Azimut. A total of 1681 students across South-East Asia participated in the vote. The Prix Azimut is an annual reading competition where the students have to read five books on a specific theme each year, this year the theme was: ART. The students throughout Asia Pacific select their favourite novel out of a list of five. The students of FIS worked on these five books for about eight months from October 2015 to May 2016. They were able to answer a variety of activities including comprehensive sheets and collaborations with Y6 and 7. The Y6 prepared comprehensive questions for Y7. It helped broaden their vocabulary and their knowledge of art (discover multiple artists, classification of the arts...) Muriel Bloch author of “Quand y a trop y a rien” visited Hong Kong in January and met the students, who had great interest in listening to her stories, her writing advice and answers to questions that the students had prepared. This year’s winner of Prix Azimut was “Le journal d’Adeline” written by Marie Sellier, who had 460 votes. The second most popular novel this year was “Le premier dessin du monde”, who had a total of 434 votes! See you next year for the new readings J - Y7 and Y8 Advanced levels.
