The annual and very popular Read a Million Challenge was rebooted with a few enhancements as Houses were competing for the most time read during six months of 2023. Reading time was tracked using the Beanstack software, where motivating digital badges were earned along the journey. There was also an opportunity to earn bonus time by entering fun bonus badge fortnightly competitions.
Congratulations to all participants who collectively read a mega 15 million seconds plus!
