Thank you to everyone who participated. Find out who won here

The Orrong Campus 2016 Reading Challenge starts now and continues till Book Week, 20-26 August. Read four books in a row (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) and go in the draw to win prizes. Choose a path and your books according to the theme in each square (see tabs for some suggestions).

Log each book as you read it on this form or year 4 and 5 students may complete a slip available at the library.

If you log your book online you can also add a review which may be published here or displayed in the library. Reviews will be identified with first name and year level.

Enter each time you complete a row/column/diagonal - fill out an entry form and hand it in at the library. You must have read a book for each square in the row/column/diagonal but you only need to read one book for each square.

A book may fit in more than one square but you can only use each book once. For example, Life of Pi is set on a boat and has animal characters but you have to choose which square to use it for. Be strategic!

Year four and five students may include up to four Picture Books as well as Fiction and Non Fiction.

Year six and above must read novels or non fiction.

You can include any book you have read from the beginning of term two, 2016, so long as it fits the requirements. Remind yourself of what library books you've read by logging into the library catalogue and viewing your loan history.

You can read books from home or other libraries as well as our library so long as they fit the requirements.

There will be minor prize draws in week one, three and five of term three and the major prize/s will be drawn in Book Week in week seven.

You can have up to 10 entries - four rows, four columns and two diagonals - if you read one book from each category (16 books). Entries will remain in the draw for each minor prize draw and all entries will be eligible for the major prize/s.
