Premiers’ Reading Challenge 2019
The Premiers’ Reading Challenge began in 2005 and since then more than 2.8 million students have read close on 48 million books. MacKillop College students, too, have been an integral part of this challenge for a number of years.
Literacy and numeracy skills lay the foundation for success in learning and in life and the challenge is a practical and fun way for students up to Year 10 to build these life skills.
The purpose of the challenge is to encourage our students to read a set number of books over the time of the challenge and record their efforts online.
The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge 2019 saw 73 MacKillop students enter with the aim being to read ten titles from the challenge list and then five more of their own choice in order to fulfil the challenge requirements.
37 students were able to successfully complete this task with many students surpassing the required number and reading well beyond the guideline.
Congratulations are given to all the students who participated in the 2019 challenge and, listed below, are the top performers for 2019:
Year 7 Maroon Charlee Cummings – 39 books
