As Brisbane Grammar School turns 150 this year we are holding the BGS150 Reading Challenge and we're issuing the challenge to all English classes!

It's easy to be take part in - just get your English class involved and record your reading in your Reading Log (Years 5-8) or with your English teacher (Years 9-12). All books will need to come from the 'challenge categories', and you will need to read at least one book from at least three different categories. Keep a look out for the poster in your English classrooms to see all the categories and further terms & conditions.

Years 5-8 have until end of Term 2
Years 9-12 have until end of Term 4.

There are no prizes - its just a fun challenge that promotes reading across the school - but your class will be immortalised as BGS150 Reading Challenge champions for all of time.

Happy reading!
