Chisholm Catholic College Library > Read > LORAX

The Library team runs a Wide Reading Program that promotes books and encourages students to realise that a Love Of Reading is Awesome and eXciting. All students in Years 7 and 8 (plus other classes that are interested) participate in this program that rewards excellent reading behaviours. Students are allowed to choose their own reading material and their teachers reward excellent reading behaviours with points. As students achieve points throughout the year they can redeem prizes from the Teacher Librarians during their fortnightly visits to the Library.
