I would like to congratulate all students around NSW who are participating in the Premier's Reading Challenge this year.

The Premier's Reading Challenge allows students to experience a range of exciting stories, and explore issues that can challenge the way one thinks.

With thousands of books to choose from, students have the opportunity to embrace subjects that will widen their horizons and expand their vocabularies.

I encourage all participants to be courageous with their reading choices, and to approach the Challenge with great energy and enthusiasm.

The world of books is certainly an exciting one, and I wish all students undertaking the Premier's Reading Challenge a fun, enjoyable and fulfilling experience.
