Berwick Year 9 students contemplated the value of human rights in the context of the Jewish Holocaust in WWII by engaging with a firsthand account from Holocaust survivor, Paul Grinwald, recently over Zoom.

Born to Jewish parents in Paris 1933 (the year Hitler was made Vice Chancellor of Germany) Paul told our students his account of life during the Nazi occupation of France 1940-1944 and the decay of human rights that resulted in the systematic deaths of around 6 million Jewish people in Europe.

His message was that there is only one race, the human race, and we should all value the wonderful diversity this brings to our lives.

Travel restrictions may have eased, but it seems our Year 2 students would prefer to camp out at school after spending so much time at home this year.

Lucky the Beacon Explorers team were prepared for the recent outdoor education day with tents, a fire pit and plenty of fun activities.

Last term’s lockdown was no fun, but did produce some of the most creative Year 9 ‘Personal Best’ projects we’ve seen yet.

Pakenham Campus students proudly displayed their projects last week, the results of hours of planning, design and creation.

Keen equestrienne Olivia Bartlett applied her love of horses to building an amazing horse sculpture, made from 184 individually-buffed horseshoes and fencing wire. Jackson McNeill spent 38 days doing up his 1993 Nissan Skyline R33 GTS-T, which he now plans to use for legal drifting.

Many projects required students to learn new skills. Ava Cashmore’s decision to make a bamboo water feature meant she had to learn how to use a welding tool. She said: “I wanted to learn to weld and do something creative – so dad taught me how to use different power tools.”

Personal Best gives students one term to create project representing their personal passion. Along the way, they document their work in a folio, including sketches, budget consideration, materials and tools used.

Amazing! I love personal best! I remember years ago when my son did his, he rebuilt a engine from scratch (for a 1965 Ford) and there were a few snide remarks that he can’t possibly have done it all himself, well a few years have passed now and he’s a fully qualified mechanic and about to open his own workshop specialising in vintage cars! Just goes to show when they have a passion anything is possible!!

Absolutely amazing work guys, well done 😊

This program is epic! Would love to be able to run something similar at my school
