2023 Premier's Reading Challenge


Students in Years 2 - 9 are invited to join the Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) for 2023.

The PRC is not a competition but a way to encourage 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 and record books read during the reading period, between 8 May to 25 August. A reader record form is available via the Compass page (see button below) for students to record the number of books they have read.

To complete the challenge:

  • Prep to Year 2 must read or experience at least 20 books
  • Years 3 and 4 must read at least 20 books
  • Years 5 to 9 must read at least 15 books.

Experiencing books can include shared reading, listening to stories, or reading picture books. The aim of the 2023 challenge is to encourage students to make time to read.

For suggested books or for more information about the PRC, please visit: readingchallenge.education.qld.gov.au or contact Holley Greenway, College Librarian or your child’s teacher.
