We’ve had a great start to The Premier’s Reading Challenge this year!
Many students have been seen reading before school, at lunch times and after school in the library to get ahead with their reading for The NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge…….awesome!
This is just to remind everyone that all students in K-6 will be encouraged to complete this challenge before the end of August this year. Incentive Charts with student progress are on display in the Library. As students in K-6 have weekly Library lessons, we will be encouraging the students to keep reading until completion and monitoring their progress.
High School students in Years 7-9 who have completed the challenge in the past will also be encouraged to continue. However, monitoring, recording and handing in completed challenge sheets to library staff will be their own responsibility.
Many students ask if they can count books they have read at home towards their challenge. The simple answer is …YES!
Below is a link to the official NSW Premier’s Reading Website which has Booklists available , the rules and other information relating to this year’s challenge.
I have also included a link to a video that briefly explains how to check if a book a student has read at home might have a PRC number and could be included.
Don’t forget that students can include 5 books that do not have a PRC number on their challenge as “Free Reads”.
Also, books that adults or siblings read to students can also be included.
