At a college level, the students have been awarded merits for their participation and will receive awards from the PRC organisers next term.

We have begun to promote the 2020 PRC as students can commence reading books for the year ahead. Students In years’ 7 and 8 (years’ 8 & 9 in 2020) will be able to participate. If interested, see a member of the library team or fill out an online form at
