Congratulations on participating in the Premier’s Reading Challenge.   

The Challenge is not a competition but a way to encourage you to develop a love of reading for life.  No matter what you aspire to do or be, reading and literacy skills will help you get there. 

I encourage all Tasmanian students from Prep to Year 10 to take part, no matter what your reading level – just read as often as possible during the 10 weeks. 

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.

And for families – you can help your child get involved in the challenge by reading with them, talking to them about what they are reading and providing lots of encouragement!

So grab some books and start reading!
