Learning that Matters
Winners are grinners! Congratulations to our Beaconhills Berwick Campus Year 6 basketballers who beat St Michael’s 32-2 in the divisional finals this week. They will now progress to the regional comp on 1 November.
Today I was proud to be part of the official opening of our new Year 9 centre at the Beaconhills College Pakenham Campus.
As the State Member for Eastern Victoria, Daniel Mulino, emphasised in his speech today, this magnificent facility represents a partnership between the government and our community. Schools like Beaconhills are critical to providing education services in what is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia.
We had some 80 guests join us today, including students, parents, former and current staff, Melbourne Anglican Archbishop The Most Reverend Dr Philip Freier and Reverend Ann Simons from the Officer Pakenham Mission Area, State Member for Gembrook Brad Battin, Board Members and House patrons.
Today was not just about celebrating the facilities, but also the innovative Year 9 program and those who helped bring it to life when our original centre opened in 1997. This first dedicated, on-campus Year 9 program in Victoria was just three months old when I joined the College as Headmaster that same year.
My predecessor Rick Tudor, who was present today, had extensively researched the concept of the Year 9 campus. His vision was of a campus where:
Twenty-two years on we have affirmed that early vision. We have a beautiful new $5.7 million centre, built on the same village concept as the original centre, with a central courtyard.
For our students, Year 9 at the Berwick or Pakenham Campus is on their list of their most memorable schooling experiences, a life-changing year where lifelong friendships are forged.
Year 6 Pakenham Campus students have arrived in Canberra for their Outdoor Education program. It’s a chance for them experience their civics and citizenship curriculum first-hand, with visits to Parliament House, the War Memorial and Questacon.
The camp also includes a trip to Jindabyne to take part in bike riding, hiking, Indigenous cultural activities and canoeing.
Well done All Stars!
Our boys today won the grand final of the Hooptime Regional competition, producing wins from some very close contests and a stunning come from behind victory.
They have now progressed to the State Finals, which will be held next month.
Beaconhills College is aiming to raise $9500 to buy a semi-trailer load of hay to deliver to drought-affected farmers, as part of the Buy a Bale initiative.
You can donate by going to the Beaconhills page on the Buy a Bale website. The College will also hold a ‘Friday for the Farmers’ $2 gold coin donation day on Friday 26 October.
The College’s Head of Citizenship and Service Clare Tuohy said she had received many requests from students and families to help out farmers suffering from financial hardship due to the current drought.
She said the College community had given generously this year to local and international charity initiatives and was known for its spirit of giving.
