Premier's Reading Challenge 2019


Reading plays an important part in students’ lives during their school years and beyond. It allows children to actively engage their imagination and opens up a world of educational opportunities.


Last year, an outstanding 181,000 students from 1012 schools took part in the challenge reading a total of 2.46 million books.


The reading period for the 2019 Premier's Reading Challenge commences on Monday 13 May and closes Friday 23 August.

Experiencing books can include shared reading, listening to stories, or reading picture books. The aim for the 2019 challenge is to engage more students reading more books than ever before.

Students wishing to take part in this year’s challenge can register by talking to their class teacher or to Mr Street, our school’s Premier’s Reading Challenge coordinator.
