The Mayor’s Reading Challenge is back with a new name. Mayor Penny Webster challenges Rodney’s school-aged children to “Read half an hour a day for the month of May”.
Last year, 692 Rodney school-aged children and teenagers completed the challenge. This year Mayor Penny hopes that even more children and teenagers will join the challenge and reap the benefits that daily reading brings.
The challenge is open to all Rodney school-age children and teenagers. Those who complete it are awarded a certificate and go in a draw to win a bike or consolation prizes. Going into a Rodney Library twice during the challenge earns an extra entry in the prize draw.
The Challenge has been sponsored by Rotary and Lions Clubs and Freeride’n’ bike shop.
Entry forms are available from Rodney Libraries and participating schools, or can be downloaded as a pdf from the library website. Children who live a long way from a library may phone a library and get the entry form posted to them.
