2019 Premier's Reading Challenge

Do you love to read? Are you passionate about contributing to the development of the PRC booklists? We are currently taking EOI's for the PRC Review Team. Please visit our info page to find out what's involved!

Welcome to the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge
The Challenge aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely.
The 2019 challenge will open on March 4, 2019, however students can record books they are reading now to include on their 2019 reading records. 
The Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is available for all NSW students in Kindergarten to Year 9, in government, independent, Catholic and home schools. 

If you need help using the website and the answer cannot be found on the 
PRC Support site, please contact us at prc@det.nsw.edu.au

Schools who have COMPLETED Student Reading Records which need to be validated should email the PRC team before September 30 to ensure these records are validated in time for students to receive their certificates this year.
For students whose records have not been completed, Principals will need to submit a Post-Challenge Validation Application. Information about this process can be found on the Arts Unit website at the link below:
Post-Challenge Validation Application Information

CHALLENGE COMPLETION CERTIFICATES are now able to be printed. Coordinators, please ensure you are logged in, and go reports: school reports: challenge completion certificates to download and print them. If student's names are missing from your PDF, please check the SRR Count to see if they are eligible for a gold or platinum certificate, otherwise contact the PRC team. 
GOLD AND PLATINUM CERTIFICATES AND MEDALS are currently being processed and printed, and we will email coordinators when they are dispatched.
