What is Word Mania?

Word Mania is a word-building challenge that’s easy to play but tough to master. Race against the clock to build as many words as you can from 15 letters in just three minutes, and help your school reach the top of the leaderboards!

This video shows teachers how to use Word Mania, the biggest, most fun online literacy competition for schools in Australia and New Zealand.


Lilydale Show Poster Competition

IT’S time to show off and be in the running for the title for best Lilydale Show poster for 2019. Hundreds of primary students across the Yarra Ranges ented their masterpieces in this year’s competition.

The event is in its 66th year and had a strong focus on agriculture, horticulture and the community. The Lilydale Show, in November, has a fun-filled carnival with rides, games, sideshows and showbags.

The winner of the poster voted most popular by our readers and one random voter will each win a family pass to the show and a Leader surprise pack.

Winners will be announced on their Facebook page.

The 2018 Lilydale and Yarra Valley Agricultural and Horticultural Show is on Saturday and Sunday, November 16 and 17.
