2021 Premiers’ Reading Challenge

Students in years 7-10 are encouraged to take part in the 2021 Premiers’ Reading Challenge and read 15 books or more between now and September.

The Challenge encourages children and students from birth to year 10 to read a set number of books over the year and record their efforts online. Since the Challenge first began in 2005, more than 3 million students have read nearly 51 million books.

The motto for the Victorian Premiers Reading Challenge is Open up a New World which is exactly what reading good books does.

As autumn and winter come upon us there is even more opportunity to read. Between now and September is about 20 weeks, so a book or so a week is a good challenge to keep.

To register students use their edupass here:

Students can borrow books from friends or the school library, Casey Cardinia libraries, or buy them from second-hand stores, newsagents, or bookshops.
