PREMIER’S READING CHALLENGE


The amount of time for students to complete reading and record their books is soon coming to a close. Completed sheets need to be returned to Mrs Rose by Thursday 26 August so that your child’s name can be entered into the data bank for the printing of certificates.   Well done to all students who are taking part in this great reading challenge.​
