Learning that Matters
Sensational swimming today from Pakenham students at the annual Middle School Swimming Carnival.
Students in Years 5-8 took to the water at Noble Park Aquatic Centre with enthusiasm, and were proud to wear their House colours in the spirit of the day.
Thanks to our dedicated staff for a wonderful event.
That’s right, Beaconhills College is getting ready to relay in 2020 again at the Cardinia event from 21-22 February and the Casey event from 13-14 March.
Last year our teams raised more than $47,000 – enough for two Cancer Council research awards. Let’s go even bigger this year!
Interested in joining a team or donating? Follow the link to search the Beacon of Hope team at either the Cardinia or Casey Relay For Life.
Berwick student Dylan Beaumont first picked up a violin for the College Year 2 strings program, and hasn’t wanted to put it down since.
Now in Year 11, our talented scholar has just been accepted into the Percy Grainger Youth Orchestra which is part of Melbourne Youth Orchestra programs.
Congratulations Dylan, it is a pleasure to hear you play.
Baby Addison Klara Lawler has already tried on her mum’s Beaconhills blazer for size.
Addison’s mum Peta was a former College school captain and now works as an administration assistant with our Beacon Explorers team (and yes, Addison has already been camping).
You can read all our latest alumni and College news and features in the first 2020 issue of the Beaconhills school magazine, Lux Luceat, heading to your letterboxes very soon!
Beaconhills graduate Christina Keen has claimed a Top Class honour in Theatre Studies, part of the VCE Season of Excellence.
It’s a first-time ‘double’ for the College’s performing arts department, with Christina already earning Top Class Drama selection in 2019.
The news caps off a spectacular season of high achievement in VCE subjects, putting five Beaconhills students amongst the best in Victoria. Along with Christina, the list includes Allie Catrucco (Top Class, Dance), Jaime Watts (Top Talks), Callum Pritchard (Top Screen) and Sam Sail, who scored a perfect 50 in VCE Physics.
Christina will perform at 10am on Tuesday 17 March at The Playhouse, Arts Centre Melbourne.
Tertiary courses in society and culture were the most popular choice for our Class of 2019 graduates choosing further study.
Figures from round 1 and 2 tertiary offers showed 23 per cent of students chose to study society and culture, with courses in business/commerce/management and health sciences in equal second place (15 per cent). Creative/visual arts (12 per cent) and natural/physical sciences (10 per cent) were also popular.
Monash University was the preferred tertiary institution, accounting for 21 per cent of students, following by Deakin (18 per cent), RMIT (18 per cent) and Swinburne (15 per cent).
In total, 264 Beaconhills students successfully completed their VCE in 2019 and 96 per cent of applicants who applied through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) received an offer.
Welcome to the 2020 school year. January has already delivered its own unique set of challenges, but at Beaconhills College we are raring to go for term 1 which starts in earnest on Monday.
I extend a warm welcome to all our new families who have (wisely!) chosen to join our College community and experience the benefits of a Beaconhills education.
Community is a key word associated with our school. It’s a community that supports each other and those who are less fortunate – in our local region and the wider world. We are compassionate, kind and resilient in the face of adversity.
The first day of school can be exciting for some, or overwhelming for others. I would encourage all of students to look out for your friends and classmates. If you see someone who looks lonely, or isolated, give them a smile. Or just say hello. It could make all the difference.
Best wishes to all students for a wonderful 2020.
Prep students (and their families) received a warm welcome for their first day of school at Beaconhills College.
After some initial nerves, students settled quickly into their classrooms thanks to a warm greeting from teaching staff.
Today we also welcomed students from years 5, 7 and 12 back to the College, for the start of what is set to be a wonderful 2020 school year.
Some exciting dance news! Berwick Campus Year 12 student Allie Catrucco has successfully auditioned to perform in Top Class Dance. She will present her skills-based solo on Monday 24 February at Melbourne Recital Centre.
Top Class is part of the VCE Season of Excellence, managed by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority.
Ticket bookings for the event are here.
Allie is the third Beaconhills student so far who has earned VCE Season of Excellence accolades, putting them amongst the top students in the state in their subjects.
Need a pick-me-up at school pick-up? We’re launching a new coffee kiosk at the Pakenham Campus Junior School this term. It will open from 7.45-9.15am and 2.45-4.15pm each day serving coffees (and hot drinks). A kiosk will also open at Berwick Campus if the trial is successful.
Students must be accompanied by a parent or staff member to make purchases.
We are still seeking casual baristas interested in working at the kiosk. Email your CV to email@example.com
