Millionaires’ Club

Accelerated Reader Millionaires Strive to Reach Goals:


How do you become a Millionaire? Read one million words! OBA students who have read over a million words this school year belong to a select group of Accelerated Reader Millionaires. A word count is generated each time a student reads a book and then takes a reading practice quiz online using our Accelerated Reader software. Next year we are looking forward to further strengthening our home-school links to grow this number further.

Congratulations to seven Year eight pupils who have read over one million words during this year.
