     What's On @ Star of the Sea



    Premier's Reading Challengehttp://www.staroftheseacleveland.qld.edu.au/Latest News/Pages/Premier's-Reading-Challenge.aspxPremier's Reading Challenge<p></p><p>I am delighted to announce that Star of the Sea will again participate in the Premier’s Reading Challenge. Reading plays an important part in students’ lives during their school years and beyond. It allows children to actively engage their imagination and opens up a world of educational opportunities. Last year, an outstanding 168,000 students from 1300 schools and early childhood centres took part in the challenge, reading a total of 2.31 million books.<br></p><p>The 2021 Premier's Reading Challenge has now begun and will close on Friday the 27th of August.</p><p>To successfully complete the challenge, students in:</p><ul><li>Prep to Year 4 should read or experience at least 20 books</li><li>Years 5 to 6 should read at least 15 books</li></ul><p>Experiencing books can include shared reading, listening to stories, or reading picture books. The aim for the 2021 challenge is to engage students to read more books than ever before. Each student will receive a Premier’s Reading Challenge Record Sheet next week. Students need to fill in this sheet and return to the office once they have read either 15 books (years 5/6) or 20 books (Prep – Yr 4).<br></p><p>Every student who completes the challenge will receive a Certificate of Achievement signed by the Premier. Students will receive their certificate at an assembly in November. For more information about the Reading Challenge, please visit:  http://education.qld.gov.au/schools/readingchallenge/​</p><p>As a school, we will be adding a couple of extra incentives to this challenge. Each week at assembly, we will draw out one lucky winner from the box of completed Record Sheets to win a prize. When your child has read the required number of books, make sure to submit your completed Reader Record Sheet to the office so that they can be added to this draw. Also, the first class to have everyone complete the challenge, will receive some yummy treats to celebrate their reading!</p><p>You can play a big part in your children’s future by encouraging them to be part of this positive initiative. I look forward to seeing as many of our students as possible embrace the 2021 Premier’s Reading Challenge.<br></p><p>The Readers Challenge Record sheet is included with our latest newsletter.<br></p><p><img src="/Latest%20News/PublishingImages/2021PremierReadingChallenge2.jpg" alt="2021PremierReadingChallenge2.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:561px;" /><br></p><p>​<br></p>
