Learning that Matters
Beaconhills students, staff, College Board members, families and friends stepped out in solidarity at this year’s hugely successful Casey Relay for Life event on 13 March.
More than 200 members of the Berwick Campus Middle School walked all night to raise funds for cancer research. At latest count, the team was just a few dollars shy of the top fundraiser for the event, raising between $16 -17,000.
It follows the $14,000 already raised by Pakenham Campus House teams at the recent Cardinia Relay for Life.
Organiser Clare Tuohy, Head of Middle School Berwick, said she was overwhelmed by the support of families and staff – including team leaders Sarah Botterill and Jennifer Roberts – and the many enthusiastic students who participated.
“The Middle School students absolutely loved it,” she said. “I think it is that sense of belonging to a community and being part of a team. They loved carrying the banners, wearing the lanyards and just being there with their families.”
Mrs Tuohy said many College families were touched by cancer and the event gave students the chance to do something proactive to help.
Year 8 student Jodie L, whose grandmother died from cancer just after the relay, said she enjoyed walking with her friends, while Jasnoor L loved the sense of community.
Many students took part with their entire families, while College staff members were also well represented.

Strong results for Beaconhills in national numeracy and literacy testing.
The College’s new HPV (Human Powered Vehicle) team put in a solid effort at its first race of the season at Cranbourne’s Casey Fields on Saturday 28 February.
The ‘Beacon Burners’ placed 49th out of 68 teams and fourth in its class, with drivers pedaling a total of 160km over the course of the day.
Head of Year 9, Graham Broderick, said the race was over a 1.6km track and the team completed 101 laps in six hours: “It was about the equivalent of a race to Ballarat, averaging 26km an hour”.
The program now has enough students to split the team in two and will have another vehicle ready for the next race at Knox during the ANZAC weekend.
Mr Broderick said with students now joining from the Berwick Campus, he expected to have a third team together ready for the last race in October.
He thanked all the parents and staff who helped on the day.
The next stage is to gather sponsors and catering teams, a bigger trailer and more equipment.
