The Premiers' Reading Challenge 2020 is a self-paced reading challenge to encourage students to read 15 books in 15 weeks! 29 students from Years 7 - 9 have signed up. They all started reading on May 11th, 2020 and finished on 28th August.
Students chose their own reading matter - novels, non-fiction, graphic novels or picture books and kept a record of what they read. This year in Year 9, Hollie Withers read the most books - 127, and Halle Wiblen, 111, followed by Sierra Beaver, Year 7, with 58, and Alexander Francis, Year 8, with 54. Well done to all those who completed the Challenged and who participated. Certificates were presented in Year level Assemblies during Book Week.
