A stunning paper lantern made from 1000 hand-cut paper pieces is among the projects which have earned three Beaconhills College students VCE Season of Excellence awards.

The annual awards recognise the most creative VCE students, showcased in subjects ranging from design and technology to the visual and performing arts.

This year Beaconhills had three awardees who now proudly claim the title of best-in-the-state in their subjects – Studio Arts, Systems Engineering and Dance.

Berwick Campus student Ruby Lang’s Top Arts award was for an enormous, white paper lantern based on the theme of ‘connection’. Ruby spent six weeks painstakingly cutting the 1000 pieces of paper needed for the project.

Berwick’s Holly Neale (now in Year 12) earned a Top Class award for Dance. Her subject score was 49, placing her second in the state. Another Berwick Dance student, Michala D’Elia, was also in the top six in Victoria.

And Tom Algie, from the Pakenham Campus, made it into Top Designs with his ‘exoskeleton’ that he built in Systems Engineering.

Holly will perform in Top Class at the Melbourne Recital Centre in Southbank on 23 February. The Top Arts exhibition will run at The Ian Potter Centre at NGV Australia from 24 March to 16 July, while Top Designs will open at the Melbourne Museum on 17 March and run until 16 July.
