Premier's Reading Challenge

 

The Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is an annual state-wide initiative for state and non-state schools. The challenge is not a competition but aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read widely for pleasure and learning.

For a student to successfully complete the challenge they must read or experience the allocated number of books for their year level during the reading period. Students who complete the challenge have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.

 

Year level Number of books

Prep – Year 2       Read or experience 20 books

Years 3 –  4          20 books

Years 5 – 9           15 books

 

Why read?

Literacy skills are vital to ensuring children have the best chance to succeed in their schooling and life. The PRC is an opportunity for students to be enthusiastic about reading, writing, authors and illustrators. Reading a variety of books builds vocabulary and knowledge, improves spelling and comprehension, can improve confidence and is also a great way to relax.
