Premier's Reading Challenge

​Prep to Year 9 students

The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide initiative for state and non-state schools and home-educated students up to Year 9 and children attending an approved kindergarten program or long day care centre.

The Premier's Reading Challenge is not a competition but a way to encourage students to develop a love of reading for life. Through the challenge children and students are given an opportunity to develop their appreciation of the English language and are encouraged to explore and enjoy a wide range of literary texts.

Children and students can participate in the challenge within their school, approved kindergarten program, long day care or as individual readers (home-educated students or students whose schools are not participating in the program).

Children and students who complete the challenge have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland. Early childhood centres will also receive a centre-wide certificate of recognition for their involvement.

Schools, early childhood centres and parents of individual readers are encouraged to recognise reading achievements by holding classroom, school or home ceremonies to present certificates during the Premier's Reading Challenge Celebration Weeks in November.

Students who have questions about the Premier's Reading Challenge at Capricornia School of Distance Education can contact Mrs Deb Anderson on 49879100 or
