The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide event for students from Prep to Year 9 in state, Catholic and independent schools as well as home-educated students. The challenge encourages students to develop a love of reading for life.
Students are encouraged to select a range of fiction and non-fiction books suited to their reading ability. While there is no compulsory reading list for the challenge, each year eResource Services develop the Premier's Reading Challenge booklists.
The booklists are available on the Premier's Reading Challenge website to help students, teachers, parents and carers select appropriate reading material.
