The Premier’s Reading Challenge is a personal challenge – not a competition. What’s your best reading tally? Can you beat it? 

If you figure out what you love to read, reading will be easier – so try reading different things – fiction, non-fiction – blogs, comics, poetry, lyrics, essays, magazines, newspapers… it all counts in the PRC. 

This is a challenge for all Tasmanian students. It doesn’t matter what your reading level is, everyone can take part.   

Reading is a skill we need for life.  All the reading you do in this challenge will help you at school and at home. 

Key Dates

We are busily preparing for the 2024 Premier’s Reading Challenge.
