The NSW Premier's Reading Challenge 2017 has STARTED for this Year!!!!!

Welcome to the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge


For 15 years, the Premier's Reading Challenge has been supporting students in NSW by promoting a love of reading for pleasure and leisure and providing them with opportunities to experience quality literature.

In 2016 a total of 277,098 students successfully completed the NSW Premier's Reading Challenge, this is more than in any other year.

The Premier's Reading Challenge Booklist features almost 8,000 titles, with 500 new titles added for 2017.

In our Library we have a dedicated area containing Premier's Reading Challenge Books so students can easily access and borrow selected books.

Students in years 7-9 must read 20 books since the close of the challenge in September 2016 until the close of the 2017 Challenge in August.
