This year we entered all students Premier’s Reading Challenge. Students will be participating in the challenge within their classrooms.
The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide initiative for state and non-state schools and home-educated students up to Year 9, and children enrolled in an early childhood centre or program.The challenge is not a competition but aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read widely for pleasure and learning.For Prep — Year 4 students to successfully complete the challenge they must read or experience 20 books based upon their year level during the reading period and for Years 5 & 6, they must successfully complete 15 books. Children and students who complete the challenge will have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.
Another way for us to acknowledge the great reading we do as a community here at All Saints. We certainly are a READING school.
