Once again St Thomas is participating in the 2019 Premier's Reading Challenge!
The Premiers Reading Challenge (PRC) is an annual statewide initiative for all school students (state and non-state) for students Prep to year 9. It is NOT a competition but is rather a self-challenge which aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read widely for pleasure and learning .
For Prep to Year 6 students to successfully complete the challenge they must read or experience an allocated number of books based upon their year level during the reading period. Prep to Year 4 read 20 books and Years 5 and 6 read 15 books. Children who successfully complete the challenge will have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.
