Beaconhills has a host of exciting clubs, sporting teams and activities. From the Equestrian Club, to Human Powered Vehicles, mountain biking, tennis, running, Cadet Unit and snowsports, there is something to suit every interest.
Beaconhills’ Pakenham and Berwick campuses compete as part of the South Eastern Independent Schools Association (SEISA). SEISA comprises Beaconhills, St Paul’s Anglican College, Gippsland Grammar and Newhaven College. Competition in a wide range of sports occurs during the school week, with home and away matches. SEISA also holds cultural and leadership events during the year.
Our performing arts program has launched professional careers in dance, drama and music. Private tuition is available on a range of musical instruments; piano, recorder, flute, saxophone, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, percussion, guitar, voice and orchestral strings.
Choirs, ensembles, dance groups, guitar groups, jazz bands, string orchestras and drama clubs are just some of the ways to be involved. Students perform in annual concerts, at assemblies, in performing arts festivals and musical productions. Email email@example.com to find out more.

Before your child starts school, you will be sent a link to MyDetails on BeaconNet, which records essential family details such as medical history, emergency contacts and photo publishing preferences.
Each campus has its own canteen, with Beaconhills food services staff. Menus are designed by our experienced Head of Food Services chef, with many dishes incorporating fresh, organic produce from our College vegetable gardens.
For the Early Years Program, all food is prepared fresh onsite and provided to children. Junior School (Years Prep to 4) children can order from the canteens with food delivered to classrooms. Students in Middle School (Year 5) and older can buy food at the canteen, or orders can be placed online using My School Connect. Please note canteens do not accept cash.
