Premiers Reading Challenge

Engadine High School


Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC)

All Year 7-9 students are encouraged to participate in the Premiers Reading Challenge (PRC). The Challenge aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student to read, to read more and to read more widely.

The Library works very closely with the English faculty in promoting reading through the Wide Reading and Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) programs.  All PRC books are clearly labelled with the blue 7-9 Reading Challenge Sticker. Students are responsible for recording all books read on the PRC website, this is accessible through the DoE student portal or use the link below..

Engadine High School proudly acknowledges all 201 students who attempted the 2017 Premier's Reading Challenge. Special congratulations to the 82 students who completed the Challenge.

Each year PRC Medals are awarded to students who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to reading by completing the Challenge every year from Year 3 to Year 9.  In 2017, 480 students from across NSW received medals. This is an incredible achievement and five of our students from Year 9 were awarded their PRC Medals on Presentation Night.
