I used to be on the book selection panel for the PRC in New South Wales…great to see it so well participated in in Queensland as well.
I wonder if I can get some posters for it sent to me to put up at Uni? It’s a shame – so many great programs like this get passed over by teachers each year who just don’t get reminded of the dates!
The Premier’s Reading Challenge is on again and the aim for 2011 is to top 75,000 student participants.

The challenge for students from Prep to Year 2 is to read or experience 20 books, Years 3 and 4 to read 20 books and Years 5 to 7 to read 15 books between May 9 and August 26.
