Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC) 2022
This week students will be issued with a form to complete the PRC 2022. The PRC is a literacy engagement program that was introduced by the Premier in 2004 to encourage students to read more books, enjoy reading and improve literacy levels.
How does it work?
Students have until the 9th September 2022 to read a total of twelve books. At least eight of the twelve books need to be chosen from the Premier's Reading Challenge booklist at the appropriate year level or at an appropriate literacy level for each student. Another 4 books can be the student's own choice and should be of a similar standard to books on the list. Students record the books read and a parent/carer/teacher or librarian initials to acknowledge the book has been read. Students return completed sheets to the library. At the end of the year students who have completed the Challenge will receive an award.
The Premier’s Reading Challenge awards are:
- First year - Certificate signed by the Premier
- Second year - Bronze medal
- Third year - Silver medal
- Fourth year - Gold medal
- Fifth year - Champion medal
- Sixth year - Legend medal
- Seventh year - Hall of Fame medal
