Campus Principals


Sarah Rudiger

Pakenham Campus Principal

Sarah is a highly respected educator who has held a number of leadership positions, including Head of House, Head of Students and Deputy Head of Senior School.

Whether it’s being part of students’ diverse academic life or donning the tracksuit as an assistant coach for the netball team, Sarah takes a very hands-on approach to her role.

She loves the College’s forward-thinking approach, ensuring that students gain the skills they need the most for their future.


Sam Watson

Berwick Campus Principal

Sam joined the College in 2008 as a graduate teacher and among his various leadership roles, led the sports department and Senior School. He sees his role as guiding the ‘whole student’, not just academically, but caring for their wellbeing and helping prepare them for the world beyond secondary education.

He believes it is important to encourage students to recognise their own potential. Sam understands that every student goes through his or her own unique learning experience.

Our College Captains

We have four senior captains at each campus. Leadership at Beaconhills is focused on service. All students have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through classroom activities, Beacon Explorers camps and experiences and the Co-Curricular Program.
