Thanks to our hardworking students and teachers, last year our school was one of 55 schools to be invited to the Premier’s Reading Challenge Reception! Two of our senior students were invited to attend the reception, where we were presented with an award for Outstanding Participation in the challenge.
This year (as always) we will be expecting 100% completion by all students. The challenge is simple – read 12 books by the end of week 7, term 3. Eight of those books must be Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC) books (look for the sticker on the spine of library books) and four can be the student’s free choice. Class novels, audio books and non-fiction books can all be listed and completed forms can be given to the student’s class teacher at any time. Please see your child’s teacher if you are unsure about the record form.
On 6th September, student reading records will be collected and entered onto the PRC website. Please note that late entries will not be accepted. Parents can help to remind their child to borrow PRC books from the library at school and even enjoy reading them together. If you’d like more information on the Premier’s Reading Challenge, please access this website http://www.premiersreadingchallenge.sa.edu.au
I look forward to presenting EVERY child with a medal or certificate in term 4 once the data has been entered. We will hold a special assembly and call out each student by name, as we do each year.
Thanks to all parents and teachers to their continuing support with this fantastic initiative.
