Accelerated Reading 


This is web-based service that the department provide and all years in Prep use to test their knowledge on the books that they read both as a class and individually. There is a site to allow parents to view what their children have read and a facility that allows children to browse for books they might enjoy further based upon their reading habits.

The Accelerated Reading House Cup is keenly contested each term and top readers are rewarded and recognised in the term’s final assembly. The links below will take you directly to the site.
