Premier's Reading Challenge

​The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual initiative - not a competition but a way to encourage students to develop a love of reading for life.  It is open for Prep to Year 9 students. 
Parents, guardians, teachers, aides, siblings, student buddies and classmates play an important role in encouraging students to develop a love of reading. Here are some ideas to help:
  • make time to read aloud to your child every day, even for a few minutes
  • show the importance of reading in your daily life and let your child see you read - not only books but recipes, newspapers and text messages for example
  • browse a bookstore together
  • ensure reading time is fun and exciting
  • visit the local library and let your child choose some books to borrow
  • for younger children, let them hold the book and turn the pages.


Any of the following activities can be counted towards the challenge:
  • reading independently
  • shared reading
  • reading along with a text
  • being read to aloud
  • reading aloud
