Schools’ Program

Discover our free online learning resources today. 

This year, the MWF Schools’​ Program was delivered online through a series of videos and curriculum-based education resources for teachers and students across Victoria, and the world.

Inspiring authors shared their knowledge on topics including identity, creativity, storytelling, and building resilience. The Schools’ Program engaged and empowered young readers — and their grown-ups — to contemplate different ways of enacting change, and consider reading as a radical act.

Education Resources

These education resources were created to accompany the Schools’ Program. Teachers and students do not need to have read the authors’ books to engage with them. The resources are theme-based and include prompts and questions that are deliberately general in nature, so that they can be used in classrooms across year levels and cohorts.
