Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open and Kingston Heath Primary School is excited to be participating.

The Challenge is open to all Victorian children from birth to Year 10 in recognition of the importance of reading for literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books by 8 September 2017.

Children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers. Children from Year 3 to Year 10 are challenged to read 15 books.

All children who meet the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier and can choose to have their name included on the online Honour Roll. If you would like your child‘s name to appear on the Honour Roll, please sign the attached form and return it to your school.

To read the Premier’s letter to parents, view the booklists and for more information about the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge, visit: www.education.vic.gov.au/prc

Your child will have their user name and password so you can log on and enter the books as they finish reading a book. If you have trouble logging in please see your child’s teacher.

Have a look for books at your local library that have a special sticker to show they are on the Challenge List.

Happy reading!

If you would like your child’s name to appear on the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge online Honour Roll, please obtain a copy of the form example below form and return it to your school.
