Beaconhills College student Tom Collard has earned entry to the prestigious University of Melbourne Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program.

The program is named after Professor Kwong Lee Dow, the university’s former Vice-Chancellor. It aims to nurture high-achieving students with qualities of leadership, engagement and involvement.

Tom’s Year 11  subjects next year include Japanese, Mathematical Methods, English, Biology, Physics and Physical Education and he hopes to study criminology when he joins the university in 2019.

He said he was “very excited” when he heard news he was accepted into the program.

A keen football player with Narre Warren, Tom was part of the Beaconhills Hillary Challenge (outdoor team competition) this year but broke his leg just before the finals during a semi-final football match.

He said football umpiring is also one of his passions, with his dad and sister Jaimie – a former Beaconhills student – also keen football umpires. Jaimie is in the Female Umpire Academy with the AFL and is studying paramedicine at the University of Melbourne.
