Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open and Clyde Primary School is excited to be participating.

The Challenge is open to all Victorian children from birth to 16 years in recognition of the importance of reading for literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books by the closing date of the challenge.

Children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents. (at least 20 of these books are to be titles from the reading challenge booklist) Children from Year 3 to Year 10 are challenged to read 15 books (at least 10 books need to be titles from the reading challenge booklist).

If you would like your child to participate, please visit the office to collect the privacy and consent form, fill in the information and return to the office. Once the form is received students can be entered into the challenge. A checklist will be sent home so students can begin reading and recording their books. Students are able to borrow challenge books from the school library or you can find many of the books at the local library.

The checklist of books that your child reads needs to be returned to school by Thursday 1st September to allow time for book titles to be entered onto the reading challenge website by staff.

All children who complete the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier and can choose to have their name included on the online Honour Roll.
