Learning that Matters
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!
As part of their elective subject of Sports Coaching and Officiating, Year 9 students had the chance to umpire an Auskick game at the MCG during last Sunday’s Carlton v Melbourne match. The elective covers sports coaching, event management and skill acquisition, with an emphasis on Aussie Rules football.
A commendable effort by our floorballers Annie Lean (Year 12 Pakenham Campus) and Emily Noney (alumnus) who recently returned from representing Australia in the World Cup in Switzerland.
The Australian team placed 14th, a great effort considering it was the first time the Aussies had fielded a team in this competition.
Annie (pictured right) scored the first Australian under 19 women’s international goal against Austria and was voted Most Valuable Player for Australia. She also scored a second goal in the last game – a wonderful feat.
In his latest vlog, Headmaster Tony Sheumack talks all things Beacon Explorers with Head of Outdoor Education at Beaconhills College, Sam Maddock.
Congratulations to Year 12 student Grace Johnson, who is acting in the upcoming adaptation of Picnic At Hanging Rock, screening now on Foxtel.
Grace plays the role of one of the school girls in the six-part series.
Well done Grace, this is a wonderful step towards what is sure to be a fantastic career on screen.
A sterling effort from our Berwick Campus Under 17 boys who scored a silver medal in division 2 of the State Volleyball Championships held in Dandenong last week.
Congratulations also to the Under 20 team, who played well but missed out on the bronze.
