Pizza Reading Challenge
A great reading challenge with tasty rewards

Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Russell Street School is participating in the HELL Pizza Reading Challenge, which is being run in conjunction with the 2019 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults. The HELL Reading Challenge is a highly successful programme that gets kids reading and enjoying the pleasures of stories with free pizza rewards.

How the Reading Challenge works:

  • Papatūānuku (Years 0-2)
    For every night your child reads at home, they get another stamp on their pizza wheel. (Your child will need some sort of home reading log/notebook that comes to school for their class teacher to see). Once your child has 7 stamps, they can take their completed pizza wheel to any HELL Pizza store and redeem it for a free 333 Kids’ Pizza.
  • Ranginui (Years 3-6)
    Each time your child writes a book review for one of the school library books, they get another stamp on their pizza wheel. Once your child has 7 stamps they can take their completed pizza wheel to any HELL Pizza store and redeem it for a free 333 Kids’ Pizza. Rebecca from our library will be working with classes to teach them how to write book reviews for our library website.

Here are the rules:
• Each pizza wheel is good for one 333 Kids’ Pizza from any HELL Pizza store nationwide
• The wheel must be signed by a teacher/librarian, and stamped with the official school stamp
• One pizza per visit per child
• Wheels are non-transferable for money
• Children must redeem their free pizza in person, and before Tuesday 3rd December 2019

If you have any queries about the HELL Pizza Reading Challenge, please come in to see either one of us.

Kind regards,
Brenda (Room 12) or Rebecca (Library)
