Learning that Matters
Exciting news from the Berwick Campus dancers competing in Queensland last weekend at the Dance Star and Glee National Championships.
The Glee Down Tempo Large Team claimed a silver medal. There were also some great individual performances also from Allie Catrucco and Ruby Thornton-Mackay in the lyrical/contemporary sections.
Well done to all the Berwick Campus dancers.
The weather might be cold but orphaned wildlife are staying warm thanks to the generous blanket donations from the Beaconhills College community earlier this year to wildlife sanctuaries and shelters.
These joeys at the Rescue Rehabilitate Release shelter are pretty happy with their new blankets.
Beaconhills’ other recent major fundraiser was the FareShare’s annual Feed Melbourne Appeal. Our families donated pasta, tinned tomatoes and flour to be made into meals for those in need this winter. We are proud to announce the final tally – 770kg of donations! An outstanding effort.
The artwork of our collective Berwick Year 3 students will soon be weaving its way through the Melbourne city scape on a tram.
Teacher Kyla Whitfield submitted the colourful design as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Melbourne Art Trams competition and it was one of just eight successful entries.
Each of the unique designs are currently being applied to the trams, and will be looping their way around our city from 8 October.
Year 9 students were busy spruiking their wares today at the annual Market Day at the Pakenham Campus.
Students worked in groups to plan, budget, set up and run their stalls. All profits raised will go to various charities helping causes such as wildlife rescue, the environment, energy poverty and homelessness.
Thirty Beaconhills families from the Berwick Campus Junior School have helped fight global energy poverty by taking part in the SolarBuddy program.
Junior School students and their parents recently enjoyed a session at the College assembling SolarBuddy lights. The SolarBuddy charity group distributes the lights in developing countries, to help children do their homework and avoid the use of dangerous kerosene lamps.
This year, the Beaconhills College community will produce around 1000 lights, assembled by the Junior Schools, Year 6 and Year 9 students and those completing the Year 8 Certificate of Excellence.
Around half of the lights have already been distributed to communities the College supports in East Timor.
Donations to help buy the light kits have also flowed in from Berwick Probus Club and Edrington Park Retirement Village’s Ladies Group, the latter following a presentation by Beaconhills students Alysha Hall and Shannon Carrig.
Year 12 student Lily Pedder has thrown her love of baseball behind a project she has developed in her Systems Engineering class.
Lily has built her own baseball pitching machine, which teacher Peter Van Waart believes is good enough to enter in the VCE Season of Excellence Top Designs awards.
As a high level baseball player (she competed in the national championships this year), Lily couldn’t have chosen a better project. The machine pitches the baseball out at set angles and can be used to produce ground balls and fly balls so the user can practise fielding.
Lily has spent around 100 hours working on the machine and is now in the final stages of doing the coding. She said she has always been fascinated by mechanics, although she hopes to pursue a career in psychology.
