Learning that Matters
Beaconhills College has earned a City of Casey Australia Day award – Casey Community Group of the Year! The award recognises our educational contribution to help strengthen the Casey community.
Just some our initiatives last year included Relay for Life ($50,000 raised), Vinnies Soup Van volunteering, Solar Buddy light donations to fight environmental poverty, support of East Timor schools, books for the vision impaired via Insight Education, donations of winter coats, food and gifts to local charities and much more…
Pictured are two of our captains, Ashleigh Gilson and Riley Boland today proudly receiving our award.
Beaconhills College has become the first school in the Casey/Cardinia region to offer boarding for international students.
The College now has a modern boutique-style residence adjacent to the grounds of the Pakenham Campus, giving overseas students an option to homestay accommodation or staying with relatives. The spacious residence is staffed 24 hours by experienced supervisors and mentors.
Head of Admissions and Marketing Joanne McKenzie said the residence was an exciting new addition to the College’s successful international program.
I have some good news to share about two of our Year 12 graduates.
Firstly, happy new year to all of our Beaconhills community. I hope you have had a restful Christmas break and found time to connect with family and friends.
Exciting news for two of our graduating students whose technology work has made it into Top Designs 2018, as part of the VCE Season of Excellence.
Congratulations to Lachlan Toth from the Berwick Campus for his chair he created in Product Design and Technology, and to James Wilkinson from the Pakenham Campus for his racing car simulator made in Systems Engineering. Both these projects will be on display, alongside with the best VCE design work in Victoria, at the Top Designs Exhibition, Melbourne Museum from 17 March to 15 July. You can read more about their work here in Beaconhills latest news.
I would also like to congratulate all Beaconhills students who were shortlisted for the VCE Season of Excellence awards. We await results of dance students who have also been invited to audition for Top Class. Outstanding results again for Beaconhills, well done.
The technology design work of two Beaconhills College graduates will feature in the upcoming Top Designs exhibition at the Melbourne Museum.
The projects by Lachlan Toth and James Wilkinson are recognised as amongst the best in the state for 2017 Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) Year 12 students.
For his Systems Engineering project, James designed a racing car simulator that has two degrees of motion and features a custom made steel frame, power supply and circuit board.
James was lucky to have the support and background skills of his Systems Engineering teacher at the Pakenham Campus, Peter Van Waart.
Mr Van Waart is in his first year of teaching after running his own business building V8 supercars and world rally cars for Subaru in England. Four of Mr Van Waart’s Systems Engineering students at Beaconhills scored 40/50 or higher in the subject.
Berwick Campus students Lachlan Toth was excited that the chair he made in Product Design and Technology was chosen for the exhibition. His teacher was Scott Colquhoun.
Lachlan said his task was to create a modern rocking chair for a mother-to-be, which he did using a veneer wood bending technique and combining it with a cowhide sling and headrest.
The Top Designs exhibition is at the Melbourne Museum from Saturday 17 March to Sunday 15 July.
Thought about enrolling your child in the Beaconhills College instrumental music program for 2018? We have talented specialist teachers who will help foster a life-long love of music.
Students can join a band or ensemble, like these Pakenham Campus Year 5s at their end-of-year concert.
