Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

The 2013 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open

The current and past Premiers proudly support this important literacy initiative and declare the ninth annual Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge open.

In 2013, for the first time infants and pre-prep children are being encouraged to join the Challenge.

Last year over 220,000 Victorian students read more than 4 million books. Hopefully this year’s Challenge will inspire even more children and young adults than ever before to foster a love of reading.

The Challenge is not just about reading in English. The Challenge is open to reading in any language. Students can read, or be read to, children’s stories in Arabic or Spanish, classic comedies in French, the Ramayana in Hindi, Chinese poetry and more.

Let the reading adventure begin. Click here to see the official website.



Would you please pass on our gratitude to the Principal, teachers and support staff at Weeroona College. Thanks to their efforts, Mary has transitioned well into high school and has enjoyed the extra-curricular activities, such as basketball and Concert band. She has also achieved well academically and enjoyed her first year at your college.

Happy Parents

The Learning Community structures are an excellent model.

My child’s advisor cares about him holistically and this is important to me.

Overall, we are very happy with Weeroona College Bendigo. The teachers are always approachable and very informative.

We have found the energy and enthusiasm from the office staff, teachers, and principal outstanding. Keep up the magical work and we look forward to the coming years.
