An innovative park design by a Year 7 Beaconhills College student is heading its way to a housing developer’s desk after it earned top prize in a local geography competition.
Elliot Perez, Year 7, has just won the MapIT! Challenge, run by the Cardinia Shire Council and the Geography Teachers Association of Victoria.
Elliot’s design of a park in Officer’s Savannah Estate delighted the judges, who have now forwarded his concepts to the estate’s developers.
While Elliot’s project took the individual prize, four other Beaconhills students earned accolades at the awards ceremony. Hayley Drake, Ethan Blake and Rhianna Clemow were awarded ‘X-Factor’ awards and received certificates and $50 Village movie voucher. Aaron Sharp was crowned the Individual Winner – Vicwalks, for his walking map.
The MapIT! Challenge, now in its second year, takes students out into the local community, getting them to evaluate an area and then redevelop it. Student also have to create a walking map and identify good and bad points along the way with accompanying photographs.
Beaconhills Geography teacher Jodie Bayley went with the students to the awards night and said she was incredibly proud of all of their work.
“And it was amazing to hear the judges speak so highly of Elliot’s ideas and say that they were forwarding his work on to the developers,” Ms Bayley said.
