How to log in

Log into the student portal to record your reading here. This page looks like this:

You need to click on VPRC login (highlighted in yellow, above). Then enter your username and password into the fields marked in yellow, below:

Senior School students: You will have received your username and password in an email from Ms Johnson - please save this email to refer back to in future.

Raymond House and Blinkbonnie House students: You will have received your username and password in a Circular to your parents or guardians.

If you are having issues logging on, here are some trouble-shooting steps to try:

  • Check you are trying to log into the correct place: VPRC login (not Edupass login)
  • Try using a different internet browser (eg. Chrome, instead of Firefox)
  • Try carefully copying and pasting your username and password from the email

If you are still having problems, please follow these steps:

Please take a screenshot of the issue and email it to, with a brief message with what you are trying to do, what the problem is, and if you have tried the above trouble-shooting steps. We will investigate the problem and get back to you.

Reading Challenge Dates

The challenge is on now! Anything you have read from the start of Term 1 this year can be counted towards the challenge.

The challenge ends on the 18th of September, but please aim to have all your books read and recorded in the online portal by 3:30pm on Friday 11th of September.

We will still need to verify your books before the 18th of September, so any books entered after 11th September are not guaranteed to count towards your total.
