Premier’s Read­ing Chal­lenge cer­tifi­cates for stu­dents

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Premier’s Read­ing Chal­lenge is an an­nual ini­tia­tive for state and non-state schools and home-ed­u­cated stu­dents up to Year 9.

The Premier’s Chal­lenge was de­signed to en­cour­age stu­dents to de­velop a love of read­ing for life.

Through the chal­lenge, stu­dents are given an op­por­tu­nity to de­velop their ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the English lan­guage and are en­cour­aged to ex­plore and enjoy a wide range of lit­er­ary texts.

The stu­dents who com­pleted the chal­lenge had their ef­forts recog­nised through the re­ceipt of a Cer­tifi­cate of Achieve­ment signed by the Premier of Queens­land.

Al­most 70 stu­dents at Childers Pri­mary School were awarded their cer­tifi­cates by lo­cal MP Stephen Ben­nett.

Mr Ben­nett con­grat­u­lated all the stu­dents on their ef­forts in the chal­lenge.

“It’s a great achieve­ment for all the stu­dents in­volved,” Mr Ben­nett said.

The school hall was packed, with proud par­ents all film­ing their chil­dren and cel­e­brat­ing their achieve­ments.

Par­ents had their iPhone in hand cap­tur­ing ev­ery mo­ment.

Dad of two Bren­dan Frazer said his kids had made him very proud and it was great to watch.

The mu­si­cal tal­ents of the school stu­dents were im­pres­sive.

“I can’t be­lieve how tal­ented all th­ese kids are,” Mr Frazer said.
