Premier’s Reading Challenger celebrates 14 years of reading
Rebecca B., Stage I Northern Adelaide Senior College student, is awarded a Hall of Fame certificate for completing 14 years of the Premier’s Reading Challenge yesterday.
The Premier’s Reading Challenge is a literacy engagement program that was introduced by the Premier in 2004 to encourage students to read more books and enjoy reading.
The Challenge requires students to read 12 books between the beginning of the school year and early September.
“I did the Premier’s Reading Challenge because I’ve done it for most of my life,” says Rebecca.
“Even though I have learning disabilities I still want to read. Reading is one of the best things that can help to improve my learning disability.
Rebecca sourced this year’s books from around the home, school and her local library.
“My favourite genre is animals and all the adventures you can have with them.”
“I know I have achieved well and I continue to improve myself and achieve what I can achieve.”
Lisa Southon, NASC Librarian, is very proud of her achievements.
“It’s fourteen years of commitment and she has read into several different genres,” says Lisa.
“She’s a regular borrower from the library regardless of the Premier’s Reading Challenge.
“She’s actually one of several other students that also regularly borrow and it would be fantastic to encourage those in 2021 to become part of the Premier’s Reading Challenge.”
