Did you know?

More than 150,000 children took part in the 2016 Premier’s Reading Challenge!

Almost 2 million books were read! Stacked on top of each other, they would reach into space!

Ok - this might not be quite right, but we thought it sounded fun!

Big Thank You wraps up for 2017

We have been overwhelmed with support for this year’s Big Thank You.

Most importantly, we also think our teachers deserve to know just how much their hard work and dedication is appreciated by their students.

Our TUH judges have been busy reading through 1,384 thank you messages from students to 792 teachers at 364 schools and early childhood centres across Queensland. One hundred student winners have been selected who will each win $50 just in time for the school holidays – yay!

Make sure you check them all out on our Big Wall of Winners.

The winning schools for 2017 are:

  • Goodna State School
  • Cavendish Road State High School (Coorparoo)
  • Gin Gin State School
  • St Peters Catholic Primary School (Rockhampton)
  • St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School (Bracken Ridge)

They will each receive $1,000 to buy more books, games and resources to continue to inspire their students to love reading as much as we do!

How does the ‘Big Thank You’ Giveaway work?

As the proud principal partner of the 2017 Premier’s Reading Challenge, we thought it would be a great idea for teaching staff to hear first hand just how much they inspire a love of reading in our children. Students (or parents of very young students) can tell us in 50 words or less how their teacher or librarian helps inspire a love of reading.

Tell your friends so they can thank their teachers and librarians too!
