Premier’s Reading Challenge
The theme for the challenge this year is ‘Reading can take you anywhere’. By encouraging students to register and participate, we can give them the opportunity to develop a lifelong love of books and the chance to discover the joys of escaping into the pages of a really good book. The Premier’s Reading Challenge website has an online booklist with over 7,000 titles across all genres and formats. By visiting the website, students can register online, choose their own avatar and log all the books they read over the course of the challenge.
The challenge is for students to read a minimum of 12 books between May and 9 September 2022 and is open to all students from Kindergarten to Year 10. Students can also add books that may not be on the booklist to count towards their total. For more information please click Here
