2019 Premier's Reading Challenge

PRC Student Site

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 new PRC student site is now LIVE!
