Former Premier John Cain wowed by Premiers’ Reading Champions

Recently I was joined by former Premier John Cain to congratulate students from both Hillsmeade Primary School and Kilberry Valley Primary School on participating in this year’s Premiers’ Reading Challenge.

An extraordinary 800 students comp…leted the challenge at Kilberry Valley Primary School, including 84 who read 100 books.

Hillsmeade Primary School got in on the action too with 45 students completing the challenge, three of which read 50 books.

Mr Cain was very impressed with our champion readers, especially Sasuni Hirimuthugoda who recently won the Victorian Spelling Bee Championship. Mr Cain asked Sasuni to spell the word manoeuvre and she did so with ease!

Well done to everyone who participated in this year’s Premiers’ Reading Challenge.
