This year’s Book Week theme was “Find Your Treasure” so Wynnum SHS celebrated all our childhood treasures from Green, Eggs and Ham to Pig the Pug. Students dressed up as their favourite childhood book characters during the week to get their photo taken with their favourite books. During Book Week staff helped this celebration by reading their favourite books to the students.
Book Week was also the final reading week for the Premier’s Reading Challenge. This year is the first year that Wynnum SHS has participated in this challenge. All students participated in the challenge where we challenged them to read 15 books for Years 7-9 and 7 books for Years 10-12.
During the Premier’s Reading challenge students read a total of 2788 books with 34 of our students meeting the challenge as outlined by year level below. Congratulations to all students who logged reading the required number of books for their year level, some of them reading above and beyond what was required.
Thank you to everyone who helped out by donating new or preloved books for our Premier’s Reading Challenge this year.
