The Premier's Reading Challenge aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely. The Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is available for all NSW students in Kindergarten to Year 9.
The 2022 Challenge kicked off on Monday 28 February and closes Friday 19 August (midnight) for students.

The Challenge involves over 300,000 students from Kindergarten to Year 9 and more than 2100 government, non-government and home schools. The NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge book lists open doors to a rich collection of children’s literature representing a range of books including fiction, non-fiction, picture books, poetry and drama, and include a wide variety of Australian authors.
K-2 students will need to read 30 books while Years 3-9 need to read 20 between the 2nd March and 28th August. It is a wonderful initiative that I encourage all students to be a part of.
Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 students will complete the challenge with their classroom teacher through the books that are read to them on a daily basis. All other students who would like to participate will need to see Miss Bremner for their login in details.
