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
