Premier's Reading Challenge 2015

13/05/2015
I am delighted to invite all Everton Park State School students to join in the 2015 Premier’s Reading Challenge.
 
As well as being fun, the challenge aims to boost children’s literacy skills by encouraging students to read widely for pleasure and learning, to develop their imagination, and to cultivate a passion for literature.
 
Last year, more than 108,000 students and 700 schools registered in the program. More than 77,500 students successfully completed the challenge reading 1.65 million books.
 
The reading period for the 2015 Premier's Reading Challenge commences on Tuesday 19 May and closes Friday 28 August. This year, the Premier has challenged all state and non-state school students from Prep to Year 2 to read or experience 20 books, Years 3 and 4 to read 20 books and Years 5 to 9 to read 15 books.
 
Prep to Year 2 students can experience books through shared reading, listening to stories or reading picture books. The aim for the 2015 challenge is to reach a total of two million books read.
 
Every student who completes the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier and all students receive a Certificate of Participation. It will be my great pleasure to present these certificates during the Premier’s Reading Challenge Celebration Weeks to be held 9 – 20 November 2015.

You can play a big part in your children’s future by encouraging them to be part of this positive initiative.   I look forward to seeing as many of our students as possible embrace the 2015 Premier’s Reading Challenge.
 
Yours sincerely,
