Little Beacons Learning Centre has once again achieved the highest government rating possible – assessed as ‘exceeding’ in all seven quality areas of the National Quality Standard.

The centre is of just a handful in Victoria to have achieved such a high standard and can now apply again to continue its overall rating of ‘excellent’.

The outstanding achievement was the culmination of months of work for Little Beacons staff and a rigorous assessment process by the Department of Education and Training.

In its summary comments, the Department said the centre demonstrated a strong commitment to continuous improvement across all seven quality areas.

“Critical reflection was a continuous process and included reflection on each individual child and their interactions with families, educators, peers, specialists and the indoor outdoor environments,” the report stated. “Little Beacons also demonstrated meaningful engagement with their families, Beaconhills College, local and global communities.”

A delighted Head of Little Beacons, Vicki Reid, said the outcome was a “huge accolade” for the staff for their hard work and commitment to quality practice.

She also thanked the combined efforts of the College’s larger team to help Little Beacons continue to deliver high quality educational programs.

“We look forward to celebrating this achievement with the teams, the families and especially with the children,” she said.

What a fine bunch of pioneers. Thirty-five years may have past but the fond memories are still there. So many stories have evolved over those years. So many experiences - some challenging, some satisfying, perhaps even some traumatic or difficult, but I trust that they have been full of hope and love. Best wishes to you all.

What I’d like to know is what everyones careers are 😀

Beaconhills College teacher Scott Wallace has earned the title of Casey YMCA Community Father of the Year.

Mr Wallace’s children submitted a heart-warming entry about their dad, praising his cooking skills and love and care for his 12-year-old son Cody, who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour and hydrocephalus (excess fluid on the brain) 10 years ago. He has since undergone nine brain surgeries and has a number of other conditions. The family is now trying to raise funds for a seizure alert dog to help in Cody’s care.

The award submission submitted on behalf of Cody about his dad said: “He takes care of me when I am sick and have to go to hospital.

“He makes sure I take all my daily medicines and says to me all the time ‘If I could take away your pain I would in a heartbeat’.”

Mr Wallace, who is Head of IT and Head of Rich House at the College’s Pakenham Campus, said he was humbled and surprised to learn of the award.

“You don’t think you do anything differently to anyone else,” he said. “From the age of six, I always wanted to be a teacher - and a dad!”
