All students are welcome to join the Hawks Reading Challenge and year 7, 8 and 9 students may also participate in the Premier's Reading Challenge.
Make time to read
The Reading Challenge is not a competition but a way to encourage students to develop a love of reading for life.
Students are encouraged to select a range of books suited to their reading ability and record the books read during the reading period, between 8 May to 25 August.
Complete the Challenge
To complete the challenge Years 7 to 9 must read at least 15 books and submit both a record form and PRC consent form. Refer to the letter from the Principal for further information.
Students in Years 10, 11 and 12 should also aim to read 15 books.
There are two versions of the record form - the My Reading Challenge journal or the PRC Reader Record form. Students may use either to record books read. The consent form must be completed by a parent/carer for the PRC.
We recommend reading the following each month to achieve the challenge.
- 1 picture book (PB)
- 2 graphic library or manga (GL)
- 1 longer read – Fiction (F), Non-fiction (NF) or audiobook
The aim for the 2023 challenge is to encourage students to make time to read.
Every year 7, 8 and 9 student who completes the challenge, and returns a completed PRC Reader record and consent form, will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier. Students may prefer to use the My Reading Challenge journal to record books read.
There will be recognitions, monthly challenges and opportunities for prizes during the challenge.
So, what are you waiting for? Make time to read in 2023.
