NSW Premier's Reading Challenge

NSW Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) aims to encourage a love of reading for leisure and pleasure in students, and enables them to experience quality literature.

The challenge encourages students to read, to read more and read more widely.

In 2020 over 426,000 K-9 students participated in the Premier's Reading Challenge and over 312,000 completed Student Reading Records (SRR). Across the state students read 8,706,761 books as part of the challenge last year.

The 2021 NSW Premier's Reading Challenge was launched on 1 March this year and further information can be found on the PRC website.
