The 2016 NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC) commenced March 7.
The Challenge aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely.
Students in Years 7 to 9 who want to participate must be entered on the Senior Library’s official register.
For previous participants, registration will be straightforward as their login details from 2015 (or prior) are still current. Registration will include completion of a short survey. New participants will be provided with a username and password by the Library, and will be guided through the process.
To assist the students with the Challenge, the Library has produced a brochure featuring a selection of titles from our Library collection. Students can access the list on our ‘Library Community 2016’ Haiku page. The listing will be updated regularly throughout the Challenge. A full list of books that can be read as part of the challenge can be viewed on the official PRC website.
Many students have already expressed their interest to participate, which is very encouraging. The Challenge will run through to August 19 and late registrations are accepted. For more information contact the Senior Library.
