The Premier of South Australia, Jay Weatherill, is challenging all students from Reception to Year 9 to read 12 books from the start of Term 1 and before 9th September, 2016.
Students in Years 10 – 12 are encouraged to continue their participation in the Challenge and may read 12 books of their own choice, at an appropriate level.
Instead of just talking about books with your friends you can publish your Rate-a-Book on the Premier's Reading Challenge website for others to read.
It's easy to do and won't take much time as there's not very much to write. The student who enters the most interesting Rate-a-Read each month from
February to August will receive a book prize.
