Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide initiative for state and non- state schools and home-educated students up to Year 9, and children enrolled in an early childhood centre or program. The challenge is not a competition but aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read widely for pleasure and learning. Children and students can participate in the challenge within their school, early childhood centre or as individual readers. For Prep — Year 9 students to successfully complete the challenge they must read or experience an allocated number of books based upon their year level during the reading period. Children and students who complete the challenge will have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.

We have registered our school for this year. Class teachers will distribute Reading Record Forms to their students and these need to be returned to your class teacher or Mrs Rose by the 26 August so that student’s names can be added to database for the issuing of certificates from the Queensland Premier. If students do not receive a Reading Record Form, they can be collected from Mrs Rose. More information about what is involved with the reading challenge can be found at Reading Challenge
