The eagerly-awaited dragonfly playground was open for business today, to the delight of students at the Berwick Campus.
This huge playground is like no other in the country. It comprises 20 tonnes of steel and has a massive 25m wingspan. There is a variety of play equipment for students, such as climbing nets, a climbing tunnel, sandpit and spiral slide.
The dragonfly sits next to the multipurpose Gurra Gurra Room (Gurra Gurra is the Boon wurrung word for dragonfly).
These school holidays have been far from boring for students attending the College vacation care program.
The kids have had the opportunity to explore balsa wood, dry felting, and a variety of sports. They have been on a treasure hunt and traveled into Melbourne to the Wonderland exhibit at ACMI!
Our very talented Year 11 filmmakers from the Berwick Campus have done it again. Congratulations to Jake Cawfield and Kai Van Leeuwen for making it to the finals of the Focus on Ability Short Film Festival with their doco ‘Steps’ (watch their film here).
The festival is run by NOVA Employment to raise awareness of the abilities of people with disabilities. The awards night is in Sydney on 5 September.

Students from across the middle and senior schools of our College recently travelled to St Margaret, to debate current issues with inter-school peers.
Year 7 students Ruby, Keturah and Arlene competed in the D grade competition, which is at a Year 9 level. They were given the topic ‘employers should support a 4 day working week’ and showed some great creative thinking under pressure. A special mention to Ruby who was awarded best speaker.
Year 10 students Holly, Jaime and Jack (supported by Joel), represented the College in C grade, debating the topic ‘home schooling should be banned’. Jaime was awarded best speaker.
Though both teams lost their debates, they showed great teamwork skills and worked extremely well under pressure.
Former Berwick Campus student Matt Mettes, from company Digital Medium, snapped this amazing drone photo of our Pakenham Campus on Tuesday 26 June.
Matt had spotted a photo of the campus taken in 1994 and decided to send his drone up to take the shot from the same angle. The photograph shows the incredible development of the campus over those 24 years.
Matt graduated from Beaconhills College in 2009.

Year 9 Berwick Campus student Jacob Laver will represent Victoria during July and August in the Australian National Ice Hockey Championships.
Jacob, who began skating at the age of nine, learned he would play in both the under 18 and under 15 teams.
He has also ready represented Victoria in the under 13 and under 15 teams and played in Canada during 2017/18 for Sylvan Lake in the Central Alberta Hockey League.
Jacob said he would love to play another season in Canada and hopes to make the national team one day. He said was a “great honour” to represent Victoria at the upcoming national championships, and believed the team was very strong.
The first sod of earth is now turned on the site of the new Little Beacons centre, which will be built at the top end of the Berwick Campus near Year 9.
Little Beacons Berwick will open in semester 2, 2019, and is an ‘integrated children’s services centre’. It will have 48 places for children aged six months to three years, 88 places in Early Learning (three to five years), before and after school and vacation care, two maternal and child health rooms and two consulting rooms for services such as speech therapy, occupational therapy and family support services.
The model is based on the College’s successful ‘excellent’ rated centre at Pakenham, with a focus on a collaborative, community approach.
A group of Year 8 students from across both campuses of the College are having the time of their lives, on study tour in New Caledonia.
Students are taking this opportunity to practice their French, interacting with locals in everyday situations.
