The 2019 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

The 2019 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open and VSV students are invited to register. The challenge aims to promote and encourage more reading and is not a competition. Think of it as an opportunity to further explore and map your reading to discover new authors and new worlds.

Meeting the Challenge:

  • Foundation (Prep) to Year 2 students are required to read or experience (eg. being read to) 30 books, either from the challenge list or accepted alternative, by Friday, 6 September 2019.
  • Years 3 to 10 students are required to read 15 books, either from the challenge list or accepted alternative, by Friday, 6 September 2019

 

Register & Participate:

Students wishing to participate should contact the Resource Centre for a Reading Record Sheet. This sheet will need to be completed and returned by Monday, 2 September 2019, to allow time for recording by the closing date. Any reading completed so far this year can be included in the Challenge.
