2017 Premier's Reading Challenge

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 Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is available for all NSW students in Kindergarten to Year 9, in government, independent, Catholic and home schools.

If help is required on how to do the Challenge or how to navigate the website and the answer cannot be found on the PRC Support site, please contact us at prc@det.nsw.edu.au
