Premiers Reading Challenge



Congratulations to the 137 amazing readers who completed the 2017 Premier's Reading Challenge, as part of the biggest children's book club in Australia.


Welcome to the 2018 NSW Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC). The Challenge aims to inspire 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, read more and to read more widely. We encourage all of our students to enter.  The 2018 Premier's Reading Challenge opens on Monday the 5th of March and closes on Friday the 31st of August for students. Books read over the recent holidays as well as in Term 4 2017 and books shared in CPS Library can also count towards the 2018 Challenge.


Students are encouraged to complete their own online reading records as they progress through the challenge. Students log on via the Premier's Reading Challenge website by using their DoE username and password. All Carlton Pubic School students are automatically registered once they create their own online reading record after 6th March 2018.

Students who complete the 2018 Premier's Reading Challenge will receive a specialised Premier's Reading Challenge certificate. Those who have completed the Challenge for four years receive a gold certificate and after seven years, a platinum certificate. Rules, updated booklists and privacy information about the certificate and Honour Roll can be read on the website .

Our School Library is a great supporter of the Premier's Reading Challenge. The library has a specialised Premier Reading Challenge location which houses many PRC booklist titles and is constantly being updated.  Also, students can use the Library computers at lunchtime to browse PRC lists and books available through our library system OLIVER. Students will be provided with further information during their class library lessons.


If you have any further enquires or issues please see Mrs Afonso in the Library on Mondays or Wednesdays or contact Ms Phillips.

Happy reading and Please take up the Challenge!

Mrs. Afonso & Ms Phillips
