Supporting our Local Community

May 2024

Our Year 12 Vocational Major students are making a real impact in our community! They've been lending a hand at the Bunnings Sausage Sizzle with the Kiwanis Club of Moorabbin Inc., raising funds to support local organisations aiding children in need. It's not just about the sausages; it's about building connections, gaining valuable public interaction skills, and making a difference. We are proud of our students for their commitment to community service!

Long Hollow Clean Up

30 April 2024

Our VCE Vocational Major students took charge in reinvigorating our outdoor classroom! They rolled up their sleeves, tackled weeds, cleared pathways and laid down fresh mulch in the parklands behind the school. Despite the challenges, they powered through and did an amazing job. This experience was invaluable, but the work isn't over yet!

Ride2School Day

21 March 2024

The VCE Vocational Major Year 11 students organised the first-ever BSC Ride2School Day, with over 78% of students riding, walking, or taking public transport to school! Kudos to all participants who embraced the initiative, and a big shout-out to Nippy’s and Carman’s for their generosity! Active communities are great communities!

Cans for Cause Campaign

February 2024

The VCE Vocational Major Year 11 students introduced the 'Cans for Cause' campaign. New bins have been placed around the school for students to place any bottles, cans or cartons into. The money raised for the month of February is going towards The Smith Family - not only can we clean up the school, but we can also help young people in need.

BBQ Fundraiser for The Lost Dogs Home

November 2023

On Tuesday 14 November 2023, the Year 11 Vocational Major students fired up the BBQ as part of their Community Engagement Project to raise funds for The Lost Dogs Home. Thank you to everyone who supported the cause and purchased a sausage. We raised a total of $615.00!

The Lost Dogs Home will be very appreciative and will put the funds towards caring for the animals in the shelter.

Thank you to the following local businesses for their donations and support:

  • Bakers Delight at the Beaumaris Concourse
  • IGA at the Beaumaris Concourse
  • Elwood Bakery.

The Collective Café

Community Ventures - May 2023

Two of the groups from the Vocational Major had a trial run of their community ventures on Friday 12 May 2023. The Collective Café opened a temporary coffee shop within the staff room, making coffees for teachers where the coffee was free but customers were asked to make a donation to one of three charities. The students managed to raise $114.85 for the Kawanis Club which is fantastic effort by Sachin M and Isaac H.

Our Vocational Major (VM) students opened the doors to their ‘Collective Café’ again in August 2023. The aroma of freshly brewed coffee proved popular with staff who, in return, gave back to a local non-profit. Kudos to our VM students for this initiative that blends learning with community impact!

The Beauy Bikes Initiative

Community Ventures - May 2023

The Beauy Bikes initiative also took its first bikes for service. This trial was offered to the first five students free of charge. With no major issues, the students will be looking to set up their venture in the coming weeks, where students are able to get their bikes serviced while at school with proceeds going towards the Fred Hollows Foundation. Another fantastic initiative by the Vocational Major students.
