This Is My Fight Song

In the LRC we love to celebrate and explore the worlds that different YA authors create; with the release of Mockingjay Part 2 in cinemas, the team decided that a theme night centred on District 12 would be fun, so on Monday 7th December 2015, the LRC hosted the first ‘Hunger Games Tribute’ to celebrate the world of Panem created by author, Suzanne Collins.

Based on her trilogy of novels The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, students chose their District from a glass bowl (the same as how tributes where selected in the books). There was a scavenger hunt to find each district’s hidden symbol in the LRC.

Students as ‘tributes’ from different districts then teamed up for the Hunger Games quiz. There was a healthy sense of competition, some tricky questions and a lot of laughter had by all.

After a fierce battle for points, the overall winners were Jack Lyon of District 3 and Adele Lennon of District 1 who were presented with their winner’s Mockingjay badges (see photo below).
