Queensland Ballet workshops
Queensland Ballet visited kindergartens and childcare centres across Brisbane to share the wonder of storytelling and movement, through delightful play-based workshops as part of the 2019 Premier’s Reading Challenge.
Held during Book Week from 12-23 August 2019, these interactive workshops for 2 to 5 year old’s brought stories to life from the Premier’s Reading Challenge early childhood book list, igniting imaginations and inspiring a passion for reading and dance.
Queensland Ballet for more information.
Schools, early childhood centres and parents of individual readers are encouraged to celebrate reading achievements by holding classroom, school or home celebrations during the Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC) celebration weeks, from 4 to 15 November 2019.
Schools and early childhood centres can invite their local Member of Parliament to participate in their celebration events by presenting certificates to students.
For participants who complete the challenge, certificates of achievement signed by the Premier are mailed to schools, early childhood centres and homes in October in time to be presented during the PRC celebration weeks.
A certificate of participation (DOCX, 1.5MB) is available to reward participants for their reading achievements, even if they did not complete the challenge.
