Accelerated Reader is a great way of encouraging your child to read more. Each child begins this programme by taking a computer based quiz which gives them a level. They choose books within this level from the class library. All P4-P7 classes participate in this and children are given time to read books in school and we encourage them to read at home. After finishing their book, each child takes a computer based quiz which tests how accurately they have been reading. In school we convert these scores into points which children can collect and exchange for prizes (wear your slippers in class, voucher for a canteen break etc.). Please support us in this by:

  •  encouraging your child to read accurately,
  • ask them how many points they have accumulated
  •  remind them to take a quiz in school.
  • Check their Homework Diary for how many quizzes they have taken and passed


Quiz times are: Wednesday & Thursday at 8.30am.
