Term 3 is Reading Challenge term for all junior students.
The library hums with the sound of book hunters and the beep, beep, beep of many books being issued.
The English department run a fantastic Year 10 Reading Challenge complete with a bingo sheet and prizes up for grabs. Year 9's challenge is run by the library and includes a detailed reading log and a photo competition - all with great prizes on offer.
This event has a long history at LPHS. The reading challenge is run as a part of the library program and requires students to set reading goals and work hard to achieve them.
Many students this year either met or exceeded their goal.
A second element of the reading challenge was called ‘The Extreme Reading Challenge’. Students and staff were asked to enter by taking a photo of them reading somewhere extreme or quirky. There were some very creative entries!
