The Premier's Reading Challenge is an annual statewide event for students from Prep to Year 7 in state, Catholic and independent schools as well as home-educated students. Individual students, whole schools or individual  classes can enter the Premier's Reading Challenge.                                                 Since 2006 the Premier's Reading Challenge has aimed to improve literacy and encourage children to engage in  reading for learning and pleasure.  Our school has participated since the beginning.  Last year the Bundaberg Central school  had almost every student  participating by reading the nominated amount of books. This year the students from prep to Year 7 will again participate in the Premiers’ Reading Challenge. Children will read, or experience an allocated number of books for their reading level during the period of 20 May to 5 September. Prep to Year 2 students must read or engage with 20 books, Years 3 and 4 students must read 20 books and Years 5 to 7 must read 15 books.
