In Term 2 all students were enrolled in the Victorian Premiers Reading Challenge, a state-wide initiative to encourage school students to engage and read a wide variety of books. Books which students read on their own or have read to them can be included in their final list (30 books for Prep – Year 2, 15 books for Year 3-6). The program concludes at the end of Term 3 and certificates are issued by the Victorian State Government in term 4.
Students from Year 2- 6 are encouraged to go online and enter books to their individual list of challenge and choice books. All students have the log in details, username and password in their Library book in Book Creator and Year 1 and 2 students have also received a sticker with these details to go in the back of their diaries. Tintern Libraries also has a copy of the username and password for each student if parents and/or students have any difficulty logging in.
