Beaconhills College’s international captains Coco Lam and Owen Lin recently attended the Victorian Government International Student Welcome Reception held at Government House.

The event was a formal welcome to all primary and secondary international students, to wish them the best for their studies and lives in Victoria. Head of International Education, Michael Johnson, said the students represented Beaconhills proudly.

In her speech to students, the Governor of Victoria, the Honourable Linda Dessau AC, said they were “amongst friends” and that Victoria was a melting pot of cultures and diversity.

“Your presence here adds to that terrific mixture,” the Governor said. “We are well aware that, whilst you come here to learn, you bring to us great learning too.

“While you are learning English and discovering our history and culture, our students, and others who meet you, are in turn learning of your language, history and culture.”

She said she hoped students would return to their families with an expanded view of the world, and a greater capacity to contribute to it.
