2017 Premier’s Reading Challenge - 15 May to 25 August 

Open to all students, the Premier’s reading challenge is not a competition but the opportunity to actively engage their imagination – reading widely for pleasure and learning. The Premier has set the challenge for students in Prep to Year 2 to read or experience 20 books, Years 3 and 4 to read 20 books and Years 5 and 6 to read 15 Books.  The aim for the 2017 Challenge is to engage more students than ever before! Last year 165,000 students from 900 schools read 2.24 million books, an impressive rise from 1.95 million books read in 2015.
