The study of English is mandatory in NSW from Kindergarten to Year 12.

In English, students learn about the study and use of the English language in its various textual forms. These encompass spoken, written and visual texts through which meaning is shaped, conveyed, interpreted and reflected. Complexity increases as students progress through their schooling.

Developing proficiency in English enables students to take their place as confident communicators; critical and imaginative thinkers; lifelong learners; and informed, active participants in Australian society. Their understanding of English through knowledge and skills acquisition is essential to their intellectual, social and emotional development.

The study of English should develop a love of literature and learning and be challenging and enjoyable. It develops skills to enable students to experiment with ideas and expression, to become active, independent and lifelong learners, to work with each other and to reflect on their learning.

Premier's Reading Challenge

What is the Premier's Reading Challenge?

The NSW Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is an initiative of the NSW State government. It aims to encourage in students a love of reading for leisure and pleasure and to enable them to experience quality literature. It is not a competition but a challenge to each student - to read, to read more and to read more widely.

Who can enter the Premier's Reading Challenge?

The NSW Premier's Reading Challenge (PRC) is available for all NSW students in Kindergarten to Year 9, in government, independent, Catholic and home schools. Participation by schools and students is voluntary.


You can access the PRC website by navigating to the Premier's Reading Challenge website . If your child is in Years K-2 you will need to log in using your child's DoE username and password. If you are unsure of these details please contact your child's classroom teacher. Students in Years 3 -6 have been taught in class how to log on and update their student reading records and we encourage them to do this themselves.

You can also access the PRC Support site, with step-by-step instruction for logging in, completing student reading records, PRC book lists, and general technical support.
