Personal Best projects unveiled

Each year, our Year 9 students have one term to work on a project that is their personal passion and bring it to fruition.

The astounding breadth of creativity never fails to amaze teachers, parents and students when the works finally go on display – and this year was no exception.

Each student’s interests clearly shone through in the finished products. At the Pakenham Campus, Tylah Ryder showed her love of all things equestrian by making a western leather saddle, while Jacqui Dunstan created her own horse jump. Berwick Campus projects varied from a stock whip to a range of sports cream. Madeline Hawley spent nearly 90 hours painstakingly folding paper cranes to create her magnificent art piece.

Beaconhills was the first school in Victoria to introduce an on-campus Year 9 program, in response to the observation that Year 9 was traditionally when students switched off from their learning – often the most unproductive of the senior years. The program became the blueprint for many similar programs in schools across the state.

Here is a selection of photos of project from both campuses this term.
