Red Frog jumps on reading challenge

THE Premier's Reading Challenge is a way to encourage children to develop a love of reading for life. As well as being fun, the challenge aims to boost children's literacy skills, to develop their imagination, and to cultivate a passion for literature.

For a child to successfully complete the Premier's Reading Challenge they must read or experience a number of books which include classroom or at home activities such as shared reading, listening and reading along with a book, or being read to.

Children who complete the challenge have their efforts recognised through the receipt of a certificate of achievement signed by the Premier of Queensland.

To celebrate their reading achievements Red Frog 4 Early Childhood Education invited Mayor Margaret Strelow to present the certificates to the Kindy children. The children cooked for the special event and a morning tea and mini high tea was shared with the Mayor, invited guests, kindy children and their families.
