“There's no such thing as a kid who hates reading. There are kids who love reading, and kids who are reading the wrong books.”

James Patterson

Summer Reading Program

During the Summer School Holidays the Annual Summer Reading Challenge runs from December 1st to January 31st. The program is open to children and teenagers. There are 2 categories: 0-12 yrs and 13 – 16yrs.

The program encourages children to continue reading over the summer holidays by logging the books they read to collect a voucher for a local book shop.

A Mayoral award is given to the Blue Mountains Best Junior Reader and Best Teen Reader.
