No Second Chance

YEAR 12 – NO SECOND CHANCE TALK

On Thursday, 8th May the team from No Second Chance visited Berwick College to educate the students about road carnage and street violence. The program is a unique and revolutionary Youth Safety Campaign with the clear objective of saving teenage lives arising from the tragic consequences of Youth Violence and Road Accidents.

No Second Chance confronts the youth of Australia and shocks them into making smart decisions regarding their own safety. The presentation was confronting and at times very emotional, moving both staff and students.

A big thank-you to Sarah Ward from Year 12 who recommended the program after seeing a preview on Channel 7.

For further information about the program please visit http://n2c.com.au

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.
