Learning that Matters
Some fantastic shots have come through of the diverse and entertaining acts from the Berwick campus Autumn Concert, held in May.
Well done to all of the staff and students involved, who put on a wonderful show for our community.
There’s much more to our teachers and staff than meets the eye. The hidden artistic talents of our Berwick Campus staff are now revealed in the Beaconhills College’s inaugural Staff Art Exhibition, on display at the Berwick Campus.
Students and staff will have the chance to see the variety of works in the Visual Arts centre until the end of term. They range from quilts to cupcakes, tapestry, paintings and digital images.
No, it’s a not a new form of student punishment, but rather a great way to improve initiative and teamwork skills! Pictured are members of the College Cadet Unit tackling the ‘Gilwell Gauntlet’ during the Cadets’ Annual Bivouac held recently at Gilwell Park in Gembrook.
Congratulations to Year 7 Pakenham Campus student Milie Paterson (pictured bottom right) who earned equal first place at the Legacy Public Speaking Competition held on Tuesday at the Dandenong RSL.
Mile spoke on the topic of ‘Fantasy World’, while other students from our multi-campus team discussed Personal Effort, Sacrifice and Perseverance. A great team effort from Milie and fellow students Katelyn Reynolds, Kane Blake, Jessica Peiris, Sineth Wickramasinghe, Adil Sujithkumar and Keegan Healey. Milie now goes on to the preliminary finals on 11 September.
What an incredible result from our generous donations to the FeedMelbourne appeal! We have donated a massive 1020kg of pasta, tinned tomatoes and plain flour, beating last year’s effort of 850kg. That equates to around 6120 meals for people in need this winter, produced by the FareShare kitchen.
CEO of FeedMelbourne Katherine Gokavi-Whaley said it was an “amazing response” from the Beaconhills community and thanked everyone who contributed. She said when 140,000 Victorians struggle to put a meal on the table at some time each month, “the whole community has to be part of the solution.”
Beaconhills’ Head of Citizenship and Service Clare Tuohy said she was thrilled with the College community’s response to the appeal.
We are incredibly proud of the fantastic results achieved by our students at the recent Association of Co-educational Schools (ACS) Athletics Carnival.
Beaconhills College finished in 5th place overall after a tough competition, setting four new individual records on the day. Two of those records were set by Year 7 students, with Sienna Sumsion jumping 1.49m in high jump, and Thomas Lambe throwing 12.42m in shot put. Our senior students were not to be outdone, with Year 10 boy Amiru Chandrasena jumping a record 12.59m in triple jump, and Year 11 student Cameron DeBruin racing a blistering 22.49sec in the 200m race.
Cameron went on to be named Overall Male Athlete of the Meet, after he also placed 1st in long jump, triple jump, the 100m sprint and 2nd place in shot put, an outstanding achievement!
Matisse Lazzari also scored in the top 10 athletes, placing 9th Overall with a 1st place in the 200m and 400m races, 2nd in 800m, 4th in 1500m and 5th in discus.
Beyond the individual results, our students conducted themselves with great pride for the College and respect for the other athletes, showing stellar sportsmanship on the day.

Beaconhills College has marked National Reconciliation Week (27 May-3 June) with activities and events aimed at increasing understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history.
The College has hosted an evening with Wurundjeri elder Murrundindi, while Junior School students have taken part in Connecting to Country days, a ‘weapons and tools’ session with Colin Atkinson from Wolithiga Wares and dancing with the Djirri Djirri Dance group.
A free dress day at the Pakenham Campus on Wednesday will raise educational funding for Opening the Doors Foundation, to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families in Victoria.
Gather students and teachers from four schools together with their medley of musical instruments and who knows how they will sound? But everyone agreed the creative result of the SEISA Music Festival hosted at Beaconhills College Pakenham Campus on Tuesday didn’t miss a beat. There were workshop rehearsals during the day and an evening concert which showcased the musical excellence of the four SEISA schools; Beaconhills, St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School, Newhaven College and Gippsland Grammar.
The evening featured an 80 piece choir, and an 80 piece orchestra who performed separate musical items such as ‘Ancient City’ and ‘Lord of the Dance’, finishing with a combined orchestral choir performance. A great day of musical collaboration!
Beaconhills students from both campuses recently took part in the annual SEISA debating, public speaking and chess competition.
Our chess teams did well, with Pakenham Campus placing third and Berwick fourth overall. Sam Sail and Matt Pearson (Pakenham Campus) finished fifth and sixth, while Aryan Mittal and Issei Narushima were the best placed Berwick Campus students.
Jamie Watts, Berwick, won the senior public speaking, while Katelyn Reynolds from Pakenham won the juniors.
A combined College team of six students also competed this week in annual ACS (Association of Co-educational Schools) Chess Competition, placing fifth overall against much older students.
Around 60 Senior School students from five schools took part in a visual arts ‘day of excellence’ hosted by Beaconhills College’s Berwick Campus yesterday.
Five SEISA (South Eastern Independent Schools Association) schools were involved in the Visual Arts Day which featured workshops in drawing, painting, ceramics, graphics, photography and audio-visual techniques. Guest artists were Rob Matheson and Rob McGregor.
At the same time, Beaconhills Pakenham Campus played host to dozens of students taking part in the SEISA Music Festival – another huge success. Photos of this event coming soon!
