32 students from across both campuses of Beaconhills College recently traveled to Knox to compete in the second HPV race of the year – the Knox Grand Prix.
We had 4 teams entered in this race with 8 riders in each team; the Burners, the Scorchers, the Blazers and the Jets.
The race was a 6 hour long endurance event and we faced all conditions, rain, wind and sunshine.
This race was on a very difficult and technical track, with lots of very tight corners, hard uphill sections and fast downhill sections. This meant that there were a lot of crashes and roll overs! Thankfully, all riders and all teams finished the day successfully, exhausted but happy.
Dramatic scenes last night, as our Pakenham Drama ensembles explored the cold cases of ‘The Beaumont Children’ and ‘The Somerton Man’ for the Unit 3 showcase.
Students were asked to create pieces in either the style of Theatre of Cruelty or Epic Theatre, and enthralled the audience with piercing vocals and dramatic tension.
The next generation of Beaconhills College leaders were very excited to attend a leadership conference at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Wednesday 14 March.
Eight Junior School leaders attended the conference, which was workshop-based and designed to help the students gain practical ideas to help them develop in their role as a student leader.
The group was accompanied by Deputy Head of Junior School Matt Newman and Principal Jenny Williams.
Beaconhills College staff member Fiona O’Callaghan has just become one of a handful of female cyclists to complete the gruelling 7 Peaks.
The road cycling challenge traverses hundreds of km of cycling terrain, climbing the mountains of Baw Baw, Buffalo, Buller, Falls Creek, Lake Mountain and Hotham, as well as Dinner Plain.
While participants can complete the peaks anytime from 27 October to 29 April, Fiona faced an extra challenge to overcome. Just before tackling the final Mt Hotham peak earlier this year, she suffered a collapsed lung following a routine medical treatment. However, last weekend she realised her goal, despite not yet regaining her previous level of fitness.
Fiona said the toughest challenge was Mt Baw Baw, renowned for its steep gradient (20 per cent in parts): “Baw Baw is number one in Australia for difficulty in road cycling”.
A keen member of the local Cardinia Climbers cycling group, Fiona only took up the sport two years ago. She works as a Graphic Designer in the Beaconhills’ marketing team (no jokes about spin!).
Her next challenges include the back of Falls Creek and Mt Donna Buang in the Victorian Alps.
Congratulations to all of our VCE students who received results this morning. Our College community is incredibly proud of each and every one of you.
We will share further details this afternoon.
Congratulations to Beaconhills College Berwick students Josh and Lachie, recipients of 2017 Queen’s Scout Awards!
Representing Berwick’s own Venturer Unit, they will be the 2nd and 3rd Beaconhills College winners of this outstanding award in just 12 months.
Beaconhills College players are getting plenty of runs on the board in local and international chess competitions.
While Pakenham Campus Year 9 student Regan C is currently competing for Australia in Sri Lanka’s Commonwealth Chess Championships, other students have performed well in recent SEISA (South Eastern Independent Schools Association) and ACS (Association of Co-educational Schools) events.
At the SEISA Chess Competition last term, Pakenham Campus ranked first and Berwick Campus second, with Regan C winning all his games for Pakenham.
This year’s ACS Chess Tournament was held at St Leonard’s College in East Brighton. A combined team of Berwick and Pakenham students managed a commendable third place against five other schools.
