Learning that Matters
Beaconhills College is a finalist in this year’s ResourceSmart Schools awards for its outstanding environmental initiatives.
Winners will be announced on 13 June at the MCG with the ABC’s host of War on Waste, Craig Reucassel.
The Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Lily D’Ambrosio, said the award finalists were “doing their bit to create a better place for future generations to come”.
Beaconhills College was nominated in the ‘Campus Infrastructure and Operations School of the Year’ category. The College’s Sustainability Co-ordinator Jack Donkers (pictured) said he was delighted that the College’s leadership in the area of sustainability has been recognised.
More than 100 Berwick Campus students took part in the annual Autumn Concert held at the Berwick Campus on Wednesday 15 May.
The outstanding showcase of dance, drama and music ranged from band and strings performances through to vocal ensembles and dance presentations by some of the Beaconhills scholars.
The figures are in. Our College community has raised a grand total of $47,646 from the Casey and Cardinia Relay for Life events.
This outstanding amount is enough to pay for two Research Awards to help fund some of Cancer Council’s world class research projects.
Congratulations to everyone who participated or donated.
The Pakenham Campus chess team ruled the board at the SEISA Chess competition this week, taking first place along with Newhaven College and St Paul’s Warragul. The team has now qualified to compete in the State Open Secondary Championships held at Maribyrnong College on Thursday 12 September.
Congratulations to Sam Sail, Year 11, who placed first, as well as the youngest team member Alfie Howat (Year 6) who was the team’s second ranked player in thirteenth place.
Beaconhills College now has its own rose.
The Beacon of Hope rose is grown exclusively for Beaconhills College by Rankins Nursery, Garfield North and sold through the College’s online shop.
Proceeds from rose sales will go to Beaconhills’ Relay for Life campaigns, along with other Citizenship and Service projects.
The beautiful yellow rose comes in a 20cm pot and costs $25. Orders can be collected from the College Shop each Thursday, with your collection date advised once the order is completed.

Well done to all of our student athletes who competed at the SEISA – South Eastern Independent Schools Association Athletics Carnival yesterday.
A strong result from both campus teams, with four overall age group champions – Thomas Kervin, Amiru Chandrasena, and Matisse Lazzari and Cameron deBruin who are pictured below.
Pakenham Prep students were delighted to return to school on Monday to find that their classrooms had been transformed into hospitals for the term.
Complete with operating tables, wards and a reception area, the rooms will set the scene for an inquiry unit and lots of new and exciting learning opportunities.
The impact of tragic recent events in Sri Lanka has reverberated around the world, and touched the Beaconhills College community.
These deliberate attacks devastated families with the loss of so many innocent lives. While vigils are held around the world, and significant changes are made to the security of public gatherings in Sri Lanka, our thoughts and prayers are with the members of our community who have strong Sri Lankan connections.
We encourage families to contact our Wellbeing team via the main reception on 1300 002 225 if you or your children need additional support during this incredibly sad time.
Take a trip back to the roaring 20s with Beaconhills’ dazzling new upcoming musical production Thoroughly Modern Millie.
Set in the height of the jazz age, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the story of small-town girl, Millie Dillmount, who has arrived in New York to make her dreams come true. Her plan is to find a job as a secretary for a wealthy man and marry him but, of course, her plan goes completely awry.
More than 50 students from Years 5-12 are part of this exciting production, with VCE Season of Excellence drama awardees Christina Keen (Millie Dillmount) and Cael Fisher (Jimmy Smith) playing the leads.
Director Amara Jensen said the show would have the audience’s tastebuds tapping along with their feet. Accomplished College chef Chetan Ghaisas is rolling out a menu of New York-themed food for the production.
Forget the chips and chocolate bars, patrons will have some tempting choices such as New York hot dog with tangy gherkins, mustard and American cheddar, American-style pulled smoky brisket with crunchy slaw, Brooklyn beef pie with smoky relish, New York cheesecake and Jersey choco donuts.
Tickets are now on sale for four shows from 9-11 May at Beaconhills College’s Lois Maghanoy Centre for Performing Arts, 30-34 Toomuc Valley Road, Pakenham. Go the College Shop on the Beaconhills website http://shop.beaconhills.vic.edu.au/thoroughly-modern-millie-ticket
