Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier's Reading Challenge, introduced by the Premier in 2004, encourages students to read more books and enjoy reading in order to improve literacy levels.

The Challenge requires students to read 12 books between the beginning of the school year and early September.

The library has labelled books to help you locate those on the list. You can search the catalogue too using the term 'Premier's Reading Challenge' or 'PRC'.
