Student Reading Records are in 'word' format.
You can print them as usual and distribute them to all students participating in the challenge.
Some schools have requested a 'word' version which can be downloaded and used electronically. For example, the school name or other details could be added before printing or students could keep their record electronically.
If you are at a non-Government school, please ensure all new students fill in their date of birth and the school at which they last completed the Challenge on their Student Reading Records. This will help with matching these students to their previous participation records and ensure they receive the correct award. You will need this information when you do your data entry. (Please note that this information is not used for any other purpose and will not be made public at any time).
The forms below can be used for mail-merges to make entering student information easier. You can also use them to create electronic records for each student and save the records electronically.
For example, class teachers may like to set up a class folder on a school computer in which to save a Student Reading Record for each student. As each student completes a new year of the Challenge, duplicate pages can be added to their record and the year can be changed at the top of the Student Reading Record.
Teachers should ensure that their class folder of student reading records is kept in a public folder on a school computer and transfer all records to the students' new teachers at the end of each year. Please also remember to back up the files to a CD or USB. Students receiving a Hall of Fame medal will need their Student Reading Record printed out in order to get parental consent for their name to appear on the Hall of Fame Honour Roll.
Please be sure to save these files to your computer before making any changes.Example instructions for keeping electronic records
