If your child is participating in the challenge as part of their school, please consult the school's Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) school coordinator or your child's teacher for more information.
If your child's school is not registering in the Premier's Reading Challenge this year and your child would like to participate, you can register your child as an individual reader .
If your child is home-educated and would like to participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge, you can register your child as an individual reader . If you are not comfortable registering online, please register with the Home Education Unit prior to Friday 8 June 2012 by contacting the unit via email.
Before registering individual students, please download a copy of the Registration Kit for Individual Readers which includes step-by-step instructions for online registration and tips for managing your registration throughout the reading period.
You can assist your child in the challenge by helping them to select suitable books to read. DETE Library Services has developed a guiding booklist to assist your child in selecting books to read. The booklist should be used as a guide only and students may read any book they choose in order to meet the challenge.
All students should select from a range of fiction and non-fiction books suited to their ability.
You will need to keep a record of the books that your child reads for the challenge.
Students participating in the Challenge with their schoolwill be supplied with a Reading Record Form for School Participants 235k by their teacher or PRC school coordinator. Once your child completes the challenge, you will need to return their completed form to your child's teacher.
For individual readers and home-educated students, please download and print a copy of the Reading Record Form for Individual Readers 236kfor each child that is participating in the Premier's Reading Challenge. Once your child has finished the challenge, please email or fax the completed Reading Record Form to the PRC Project Manager.
