Library events

Premiers Reading Challenge

We will be participating in the Premier’s Reading Challenge in 2017. Students who wish to participate will be setting a goal for reading towards the Premier’s Reading Challenge each term. If a student does not wish to participate in the challenge, they will be setting a personal reading goal of books per term.  

  • The opening date for entering books online is 6th March 2017.
  • The closing date is 25th August 2017.

Please be aware that if a student participates in the Premier’s Reading Challenge they will receive a certificate with their full name printed on it and their name may appear on the honour roll.

Students use their school log-in to enter books in the challenge.
