Summer Reading Challenge

Looking for something to do this summer? Oblivious to an obvious choice?

If not only for your own enjoyment, then for a little competition- the Summer Reading Challenge gives everyone something worthwhile to read.

It’s all completely up to you! Read as many books from any of the following categories as you can. But make sure you only enter one book per category. Either pick out your own book from outside school, or books that the library has categorised especially.

The winner with the most amount of books read can choose new books to join the library shelves. Which book do you keep begging for the library to get? Well, now you have a chance to choose!

Keep a record of the book title that you have read and their category- either print out the form below or go old school and write it down. Remember to include your name and form!

All entries are to be returned to the library for back to school in September. But that’s more than a month of page- turning excitment away. So for now:
