We are very excited to give the students at St Edward’s Primary School the opportunity to participate in the 2024 NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge. This is a proud tradition at St Edward’s and every student is invited wholeheartedly to participate. 


Every student at the Infants Campus will automatically be signed up to the challenge and read books from the challenge as part of their class and library sessions. 


Login details have been handed out to all primary students who are participating in this years challenge. If your child has not received their login details, please ask them to come and see Mrs Michell in the library or email 


Students can start logging their books today using this link 


Students are encouraged to log onto the PRC website from home, or access the PRC site using the iPads in the library in their break time. Students should now start to log books they have read and also discover books that are part of the PRC using the link above. If you have any problems with logging books or access please reach out. 


The Challenge runs until Friday 23rd August, 2024. Students can join at any time but the end date remains the same.
