College Theme and Goals
2013 College theme – Together we make a difference
Each year students are asked to put forward their ideas for a College theme. It was fitting that this year’s theme, which emerged from this collaborative exercise, was ‘Together we make a difference’.
Collaboration is behind many great steps forward, whether it is a social movement or a scientific discovery. Nobel prizes may go to individuals, but the nature of scientific enterprise means there is often a large team behind the achievement.
Beaconhills College will continue to encourage, inspire and nurture students to achieve their very best personal standard. However, this year’s theme will also encourage students to consider the power of the collective effort.
Pictured is the new logo which depicts the theme ‘Together we make a difference’. It incorporates a number of elements; the handprint is the signature of the Little Beacons Learning Centre while the yellow and blue colours represent the Pakenham and Berwick Campuses. Each hand depicts the colour of the College’s eight houses while the Beaconhills cross symbolises the Christian faith on which Beaconhills was built.
Each goal relates to a letter in the word BEACON and these six goals essentially encompass everything we stand for as a College:
B – Building academic resilience and creativity
E – Encouraging innovative solutions to sustainability
A – Accepting cultural diversity through experience
C – Changing lives through service
O – Optimising a healthy mind, body and spirit
N – Nurturing student wellbeing
