2016 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.
2015 Book Bonus Fundraiser
Book Bonus is a read-a-thon where students can ask family and friends to sponsor them for reading books for the PRC. Book Bonus is an initiative of Dymocks Children's Charities. More information.
