Premier's Reading Challenge 2012


It's that time of year in Queensland again!  

'' The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual event, aimed at improving children's literacy, cultivating a passion for literature and encouraging children to read widely for pleasure and learning.

The challenge encourages students from Prep to Year 7 to read or experience a variety of books.   The Premier's Reading Challenge is not a competition, but a way to encourage greater involvement in reading and develop a love of reading for life. 
All students can participate.   

Now in its seventh year, the challenge aims to help young minds to learn through literacy by boosting the number of books children read, and encouraging them to read more challenging texts.

In 2011, more than 680 schools and over 110,000 students participated in the challenge. 
More than 78,000 students successfully completed the challenge reading over one million books.  ''

Visit  Premier's Reading Challenge to register and download reading record forms.  The list of books is always includes books by Australian authors, and new books that you may not have come across yet.  We'll be participating as a bit of fun.  Doing our bit for the National Year of Reading ;)

All the best!
