Why? to celebrate Book Week and raise money for P&C programs. Download the forms.
To participate, children ask family and friends to sponsor them per page or to make a donation. Record sponsors on the Sponsorship Form.
Students then read as many pages as they can between Saturday 17 August and Sunday 2 September. Record the books they read (and how many pages) on the My Completed Books Form and ask a parent or teacher to initial each book they complete.
Yes, children can record the same books for the Read-a-Thon and Premier's Reading Challenge.
After Sunday 2 September, add up the grand total of pages to calculate what sponsors owe and collect the pledges. Pay via Qkr! and return forms (and cash if needed) to the P&C box at the school office by 3pm on Friday 7 September 2018.
There will be prizes for
- most pages read — junior and senior
- most money raised — junior and senior
- extra prizes for excellent effort each grade
