Beaconhills College is celebrating excellent VCE results across a sweeping range of subject choices.
Twenty students from the College’s Pakenham and Berwick Campuses received ATARs (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) of 90 or above, with an impressive one third of all ATARs across the College exceeding 80.
In total, 83 students scored 40 or more across 24 different subjects. Beaconhills offers a choice of 40 VCE subjects.
The huge subject choice also shone through in results from the top 10 students; they followed their wide-ranging interests in everything from Biology, Literature, Psychology, Extended Investigation, Physical Education and Theatre Studies, to Music Performance, French, Japanese and much more.
College Dux was Berwick Campus student Madison Schenk (97.8). Madison has already earned a Premier’s Award for her second-top mark in the state last year in Extended Investigation. Pakenham Campus Dux was Russell Reader with a 96.7.
Teachers were proud of their students’ efforts, with some outstanding marks in English and Literature, Legal Studies, Dance and Systems Engineering.
Headmaster Tony Sheumack said this year’s VCE results continued to demonstrate the breadth of the College’s programs and the dedication of its teaching staff.
“We are proudly a community school that provides a huge diversity in VCE offerings – and the results reflect the quality of teaching and learning in so many different subject areas and student pathways,” Mr Sheumack said.
“These are wonderful results that really demonstrate the success of our ‘Learning that Matters’ program, one which best equips young people with the tools they need for their future lives – much more than just an ATAR.”

Madison Schenk – 97.8 (College Dux, Berwick Campus), Holly Neale (Berwick) 97.4, Bridget Taylor (Berwick) 97.35, Alysson Jeanes (Berwick) 97.05, Russell Reader – 96.7 (Pakenham Dux), Bryannen Gurr (Pakenham) 96.2, Olivia Hagioglou (Pakenham) 95.25, Courtney Strachan (Berwick) 94.9, Emily Millman (Pakenham) 94.65, Devangee Illukpitiya (Berwick) 94.3.
