About Battle of the Books
Battle of the Books (BOB) is a reading incentive program for KIS students in grades four and five. After reading the required 10 books, students will come together in groups to demonstrate their abilities and to test their applied knowledge of the books they have read. This year, the Battle of the Books Club competed with other international schools at Seoul Foreign School.
Check back later for details on this year's Battle ... hosted at KIS Pangyo!
