Hello and welcome to the last week of Term 1.
It’s hard to believe that the school holidays are almost upon us. One thing I do like about being on holidays is catching up on my reading. For students and keen readers at Virtual School Victoria, here are some fantastic resources and events to support your reading:
Ebooks and Audiobooks @ VSV (Wheelers ePlatform) – https://vsv.eplatform.co/
There is a great and wide-ranging collection of ebooks and audiobooks available to VSV staff and students. These include many old favourites and exciting new titles. The collection is updated and additions made each month.
Registration is easy. Just contact me at [email protected]. Provide your name, year level and VSV student number (this number will be your user name/login). You can also register via the above website. Please record your VSV student number as your login, as this will be used to confirm your registration.
Victorian Premiers Reading Challenge 2020
This important reading event has run for well over 10 years and continues in popularity across the state. VSV students in Foundation to Year 10 are warmly invited to register. Think of this not so much as a chore or a competition, but more as a fantastic opportunity to explore and map your reading and to discover new worlds and vistas.
To participate, simply contact me at [email protected]. Provide your name, student number and year level. To successfully complete the Challenge, students from Prep to Year 2 are encouraged to read or ‘experience’ 30 books with their parents and teachers, while students from Years 3 to 10 are challenged to read 15 books.
For further information and reading resources, please see – www.education.vic.gov.au/prc
