With the NSW, VIC, SA and ACT Premier Reading Challenges well underway, we are here to support your efforts and keep up the enthusiasm!
Reading is one of the best ways to learn – not only about English and literature, but about a whole range of content areas. This year we are challenging students, classes, families and entire schools to create a Reading Resolution. Creating a Reading Resolution is a great way to motivate students to not only participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge but to achieve their own personal reading goals.
We have also developed Reading Resolution Certificates to motivate and encourage your students!
