Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge

The Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is now open and Christian College Bellarine is excited to be participating.

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 early September 2018.

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 can choose to have their name included on the online Honour Roll.

To read the Premier’s letter to parents, view the booklists and for more information about the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge, visit:

Our students are registered for the Challenge and their login details are available from the library staff. If you wish to start recording books there are checklists available here.

If you have any questions, please email

Happy reading, everyone.

Mrs. Pritchard, Mrs. Canaway and Miss Warren
