Victorian Premiers' Reading Challenge 2020

Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge 2020


The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open and Chelsea Primary School is excited to be participating. A new application is being used this year that offers a range of exciting features including:


  • access to a library catalogue (including book images and blurbs)
  • a modern user-friendly interface
  • rewarding  students with badges as challenge milestones are achieved
  • the option for students to mark books as a favourite, give them a star rating or complete a book review


The Challenge is open to all Victorian children from birth to Year 10 in recognition of the importance of reading for literacy development. It is not a competition; but a personal challenge for children to read a set number of books by 4 September 2020.


Children from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers. Children from Year 3 to Year 10 are challenged to read 15 books.


All children who meet the Challenge will receive a certificate of achievement signed by the Victorian Premier and former Premiers.

If you have any difficulty finding a book you have read or navigating the website in general you can contact your teacher and they can ask me to help you.
