Celebrating Reading Progress

Posted by on Dec 1, 2021 in News | No Comments

We are very excited to launch our Accelerated Reader programme and reading badges. This programme will encourage students to embrace the joy of reading by celebrating their reading progress. Over the next two weeks, students will be taught how to use Accelerated Reader to earn their reading badges. Each badge represents a milestone in reading success, celebrating the number of words they have read, starting at 20,000 words and going all the way to 5 million. There are over 35,000 books that can be used as part of Accelerated Reader, many of which can be found in our brilliant library or online library catalogue.

To support students with their reading, we have created our very own Reading Journey. Although there are many books to choose from, this journey includes suggested books for Year 7 all the way to Year 11, increasing in challenge to help students reach that 5 million badge. Can they climb each mountain on the way to 5 million? Who will be our first 5 million badge student? We will hold a parent information session soon to answer any questions you have about the programme or the Accelerated Reader process.
