Beaconhills College is a winner in Sustainability Victoria’s ResourceSmart Schools award (campus infrastructure and operations).
The College’s Business Manager David Young and Sustainability Co-ordinator Jack Donkers were at the awards ceremony today at the MCG with students Alysha Hall, Matthew Kane and Chloe Ward, from our Senior School’s ‘Green Team’.
The College received a cheque for $500 which will fund a student-led sustainability project.
Mr Young said the award recognised the work of the College over several years, “in particular the vision, leadership and support for our environmental sustainability programs made by our College Board, Headmaster Tony Sheumack, staff and students of the College. ”
“The College is very proud of its achievements in this area and we recognise that there is so much more to learn and develop as we move further to enhance the sustainability of our College and community.”
We are proud to announce that The Educator magazine has named Beaconhills College teacher Danielle O’Leary as one of its 20 top ‘Rising Stars’ in education. Danielle is Senior Geography teacher at our Berwick Campus.
Rising Stars recognises future education leaders from across Australia. Danielle was nominated by Macmillan Publishing, which is currently collaborating with her to produce a new textbook series for Humanities.
Danielle is described as an “energetic and passionate teacher” who employs a ‘learn by doing’ approach, empowering students to think critically about our world and to become informed, global citizens.

Students from Years 2-8 braved wintry conditions to help a clean up the beach at Seaford last weekend in the lead-up to World Environment Day (5 June).
The clean-up was organised by Berwick Campus Wellbeing Counsellor Laura Collins, along with Pakenham Campus counsellor Dylan Redman. For the Year 8 students, the volunteer hours will go towards completing their Year 8 Certificate of Excellence.
Talented artist Callum Warren is bringing superheroes to life in this striking mural at the entrance to the junior art room at the Berwick Campus.
The artist-in-residence is a former Beaconhills Pakenham Campus student (Class of 2012). He has a successful career as a commercial artist and has regular commissions for his art and design work. You may have seen another of his murals at the back of the Daydreamers Café in Beaconsfield.
Beaconhills College today is celebrating three Premier’s VCE Awards collected by two of its high achieving students from the Class of 2018 – Victoria Tiplady (Berwick Campus) and College Dux Olivia Acciarito (Pakenham Campus).
Olivia earned an impressive two Premier’s Awards for her perfect scores in Legal Studies and Visual Communication Design, while Victoria’s award recognised her 50/50 in Outdoor and Environmental Studies. (Oliva also scored a perfect 50 in English).
The awards ceremony was held today at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, with more than 1000 guests attending.
Victoria said she was “thrilled” to receive the award and paid tribute to the dedication of her teacher, Belinda Dalziel.
“Mrs Dalziel provided such an amazing support system, giving me exam after exam and correction after correction – it was both her commitment and kindness which inspired me to achieve the top results.”
Victoria said Beaconhills College’s outstanding resources enabled her to discover and build on her passion for the outdoors, both through classroom and practical experiences.
“I’d love to continue pursing and extending my knowledge in the outdoor environment career path by potentially completing an outdoor traineeship in the future years,” she said.
Both girls are studying double degrees this year at Monash University, Olivia is doing Law and Global Studies and Victoria is studying Science and Global Studies.
