Premier’s Reading Challenge 2019
There are only weeks to go until the 2019 challenge closes (August 30), so get your reading records completed and join the more than 80 students who are already eligible for certificates at the end of the year.
Congratulations to the following students who have completed their challenge:
Samara Lyons, Hiroki Takahashi-Zhong, Grace Shing, Alexander Pitts, Archibald Miles, Torren Winston, Asher Crosweller, Alicia Joseph, Reina Shi, Jamie Spittle and Elle Hadiprodjo.

*If you attended a different school and completed the PRC there, please come and see me so I can request that your records be merged. Otherwise this will be your first PRC year. This is especially important if you are eligible for your gold or platinum certificates this year and if you are looking at earning your Premier’s medal.
Finished the PRC for 2019? Well don’t stop reading!
