Student Reading Records

The Student Reading Record is how students keep track of the books they have read during the challenge. Every student who participates in the challenge must complete a Student Reading Record.

The Student Reading Record is available to download as a PDF. Each time a student reads a book they will need to record the title and author and have the book signed off by a parent, guardian, teacher or librarian.

If the student is from anon-Government school, please fill in the date of birth and the school at which the Challenge was last completed. This will assist with matching records to  previous participation and ensure the correct award is awarded. (Please note that this information is not used for any other purpose and will not be made public at any time).
