Premier's Reading Challenge


This ye​ar St Elizabeth’s will be taking part in the Premier’s Reading Challenge. The Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is an annual state-wide initiative for state and non-state schools. The challenge is not a competition but aims to improve literacy and encourage children to read widely for pleasure and learning.

For a student to successfully complete the challenge they must read or experience the allocated number of books for their year level during the reading period, May 9 – Aug 26.
  • Prep – Year 2 - Read or experience 20 books
  • Years 3 – 4 - 20 books
  • Years 5 – 6 - 15 books

Students who complete the challenge have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.

Students are encouraged to select a range of fiction and non-fiction books suited to their reading ability. Students are welcome to read books from previous years' book lists and from lists for other year levels.
