Great News – Future Health and Wellbeing Centre!

The College is extremely fortunate to have been promised capital works funding by both the Labour party – $1.3 Million and Liberal party – $1.1 million, respectively, in their budgets which guarantees the building of the College’s ‘Health & Wellbeing Centre’ that will not only provide care facilities for the College’s students and staff, but ultimately the wider community.

A valuable investment and resource for City of Casey students and families and wider community to help prevent family violence and educate the community on mental health issues .

Flash Back Friday – Our Science Domain

Do you remember donning a lab coat and glasses for the first time? Attending Siemens Summer School? Experiments going awry? The thrill of seeing the mysterious microscopic world? Mastering the safe use of a Bunsen burner (with asbestos mat) and chemicals?

We acknowledge our wonderful Science teachers and Lab Technicians who have enlarged students’ understanding of the world around them. Thousands of practical activities building on students’ innate curiosity. Years of examination, field trips, competitions, dissection, investigations, collecting and analysing data expanding knowledge over the years to foster future scientists, builders, engineers and inventors.

A special mention should be made of Mr Allen who, for 33+ years at Berwick College, (pictured – 50 Years’ Service Award) served in a variety of teaching and leadership roles including supporting the Science Domain until his retirement in 2015.

Flash Back Friday – Our Year 12 Formals

A history of celebration and a highlight of the Year 12 social calendar.

Berwick College has a rich, positive history in bringing staff and students together to laugh, to acknowledge the growth in learning and of course to dance.

A welcome break to the intensity of exam preparation, student academic achievement and endeavour awards are presented by staff, and students present novelty awards to their peers.

The Year 12 formal is a significant milestone. Each Year 12 student shares these special memories of celebration, hard work and the journey through secondary schooling. Reflecting on the night in years to come, students are reminded of old friends and of teachers who cared and supported them through adolescence, toward their learning goals, in preparation for life after school.
