Summer Reading Challenge – “The Amazing Read”
How many books can you read in your summer holidays? Keep a record of all of them in your “Amazing Read Passport” and you could win a prize.
The Summer Reading Challenge is a program that runs throughout the school summer holidays. It is designed to encourage children to read by offering incentives and the opportunity to attend a celebratory party. This year the Summer Reading Challenge is focused on the theme, “The Amazing Read” (based on the popularity of the TV show, “The Amazing Race” among children).
There is also a short story competition for kids aged 8-12. Entry forms and reading records will be available from December 5 and must be handed in by January 20.
The Amazing Read Celebratory Party will take place on Tuesday 24 January at Woollahra Council in the Thornton Room and in the adjacent level of Blackburn Gardens at 3:30 pm.
All participants will receive a certificate for participating. Prizes will be awarded by the mayor to the children who have read the most books in their category: (0-5 years, 6-8 years, 9-12 years).
