Each year MacRob’s Year 9 students are enrolled in the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge. This is a government initiative designed to challenge individual students to read more and promote a love of reading. Each student who meets the challenge receives a certificate of achievement from the Premier of Victoria.
Not only do all Year 9 students participate in the state-wide challenge, but an inter-form competition is held:
The form with the most verified books at the end of the challenge are declared winners! The winning prize includes one day at the Melbourne Writers' Festival Schools Program, a free lunch, and their form name engraved on the perpetual trophy proudly displayed in the LRC.
When the PRC opens in Term 2, 2017, you will find many new books available in the LRC from the official Challenge book lists. You can easily access the student login for the PRC by clicking the poster at the bottom of the page.
The Year 10 Super Challenge list suggests titles which may interest advanced readers. Download your own book lists below.
