A challenge completed
I am so proud of those of our students in years 7, 8 and 9 who completed the Victorian Premiers Reading Challenge which finished yesterday. They read 182 books between them since the start of the challenge. I think its so great that they can be recognised for this even though it is only having their name in the paper (The Sunday Age) and a certificate. It's very different to when I was young, when I was castigated for reading when I should have been washing the dishes and so forth. I know that reading has done me a lot more good than doing dishes ever did, and the dishes are always with us anyway. Good on ya, readers.
