We’ve had a flying start to 2018 at Beaconhills – three VCE Season of Excellence awards, a City of Casey Australia Day award (Community Group of the Year) and strong enrolments across both campuses.

The spirit of community – reflecting our commitment to citizenship and service – has been prominent in recent months. As we start the school year, I’m pleased to report we have had 700 volunteers complete the necessary Childsafe requirements to enable them to be actively involved in College life, from the canteens to the classrooms.

Staff have volunteered their time and donated their money, whether volunteering on the Vinnies food van or supporting some of our charitable initiatives at Christmas services and on staff day held on Monday 29 January.

Our staff day offertory raised $1700 which will go to the CFA, in memory of former Pakenham Campus student Sophie Cann who passed away in September 2017. Sophie was a member of the Menzies Creek CFA.

Today was Orientation Day for our Prep, Years 5, 7 and 12 students and there were many excited faces coming through our College gates this morning. I hope it was the first of many wonderful days at school in 2018.
