Premiers’ Reading Challenge


The Premiers’ Reading Challenge has now begun for 2011! In Grade 5/6, you need to read 15 books for the challenge, with at least 10 of them from the list which you can get below.

Don’t forget to write down any books you read at home in your diary so that you can include them on your list. You can also put them into the computer yourself by logging on the the PRC website using the details you will get to paste in your diary.

If you have not yet registered, you can get a form off me in class, or download one here.

If you want a copy of the book list for home, or want to see what is on the 3/4 or 7/8 lists, you can download these here:

  1. Dear Everyone,

    The list looks great. I think it`s pretty cool that my favourite books, Twilight, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn were on the list. I wish that New Moon had made it on that list. The book that my class had read last year, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe is also on that list

    Bye Bye

  2. Hi Everyone.

    I made a mistake in my last comment New Moon actullay did make it onto that list. YEEEAAH!


  3. Dear Mr Mills

    I have a question about the PRC. When are we going to get our passwords and usernames to login to the sight.

    Thanks bye


  4. Dear Mr.Mills,

    Have we got the PRC passwords yet? I wasn’t sure if it was in the new username and password sheet we got to stick in our diaries. But I checked, and it wasn’t. It’s nothing urgent, I’m just curious. 🙂


  5. @mr mills
    I just wanted to know that do u know when we are getting our usernames and passwords of the PRC and if we could have tine during our multimedia sessions to fill in our PRC book that we have already read?
    Thank You
    From Sarah

  6. Hi girls,

    I have them off Mrs Leighton now and will pass them out later in the week. We can then find some time to enter the books we have read this year. Glad to see you’re all so eager to get going with the PRC!

    Mr Mills
