Year 11 VET Small Business – Cooking Activity

On the week of 27th of October all three VET Small Business classes made Pizza, Truffles, Sausage Rolls and Muffins. For the past 2-3 weeks in class we have been learning the meaning of quality within a business. This activity was a great choice to show and gave us first-hand experience. In Particular, with the the truffles, we had to make each individual truffle the exact same size, they all had to have the same amount of coconut on them as well for them to be a quality truffle. There were some groups that concentrated on the task extremely well and had all truffles the same; one group, however, were unable to achieve the same size in their truffles but regardless they still tasted of quality!

State Success for Berwick College Swimmers

On Tuesday April 29, the School Sport Victoria State Swimming Championships were held at the outdoor pool at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. Berwick College had four students representing us at these championships. Our four swimmers were Jake Mitreski, Bill Le Brocq, Natalie and Chantelle Gray.

Chantelle competed in the Girls 16/U 50m and 100m Backstroke events. For both of these events she placed third, taking home two bronze medals for the day. Natalie competed in several events and in the Girls 15/U 50m Butterfly, she placed third and was presented with a bronze medal.

In a very exciting and tight Boys 14/U 50m freestyle race, Jake touched in equal first place. He was presented his gold medal by one of Australia’s best swimmers Nicole Livingstone. Our final competitor at the event was Bill. He won the Boys 15/U 50m Breaststroke in a record breaking time of 32.21 (the old record was 32.81).  Also as an added bonus he came 2nd in the Boys 15/U 50m Butterfly.

It was a great day had by our swimmers, and I was very pleased and proud that I got to see the students shine on such a big stage. The whole school congratulates you all on great conduct and even better successes.
