Our mission for a new kitchen

This kitchen at the Railaco Pre-Secondary College in East Timor must produce around 550 lunches each day for students. We want to help.

Thanks to two of Beaconhills College’s Food Services initiatives, we believe we can raise the $11,000 US needed for a new kitchen at Railaco in less than a year.

Our BeaconMeals program, where Year 8 Certificate of Excellence students prepare family-sized meals for sale through the College, is already supporting local charity 4C’s by way of donation of surplus meals. Now we plan to direct profits from all BeaconMeals sales to the Railaco kitchen project.

In addition, our Food Services department has recently launched ‘Beacon Boxes’. This scheme enables our community to order fresh vegetable boxes through FarmGate and have them delivered fresh to the College each week for collection. Up to 10 per cent of profits from these sales will now also go to the Railaco kitchen project.

Beaconhills College has long supported schools in East Timor and our Year 10s will again have the opportunity to visit the East Timor schools in 2018. I am absolutely delighted that we are able to further support education in East Timor through our College initiatives.
