Beaconhills brilliance: VCE students shine

Beaconhills College students have achieved outstanding 2021 VCE results across a wide range of subjects, with a top ATAR of 99.25 for Pakenham Campus College Dux Sienna Jude.

Despite the challenges of two years of pandemic lockdowns, Headmaster Tony Sheumack said the results were a testament to the resilience and dedication of students and teachers, and the support of parents. Of the 202 students across Berwick and Pakenham Campus who received ATARs, 20 students recorded higher than 90 across a broad range of 28 subjects, with 59 above 80. Beaconhills offers students a huge choice of 40 VCE subjects.

The top 20 students excelled in language subjects such as French and Japanese, English and Maths subjects, but also chose to study everything from Physics and Psychology to Theatre Studies, Software Development, Data Analytics, Biology, Legal Studies, Outdoor and Environmental Studies, Geography and Extended Investigation.

Proving that learning has no boundaries, international student Md Zabir Hossain who was studying offshore from Bangladesh managed a perfect 50 in Biology. And despite completing Year 12 online from China, Liu Zirui (Ray) triumphed with an ATAR of 92.65.

And after scoring a 50 in Year 11 for Extended Investigation – and a Premier’s Award – Sharni Seamons topped off her VCE with an ATAR of 99, making her Berwick Campus Dux.

Congratulations to all VCE students for completing the year.
