Berwick College


Berwick College commenced in 1977 with the motto “Crescam – I shall grow” and today, through the strong focus on excellence in teaching and learning, students continue to demonstrate growth, are empowered to succeed, develop their leadership skills and make a difference to our community each day.
2017 Victorian Education Excellence Award winners, our focus is on improving the learning outcomes of every student and fostering individual student potential so they can achieve to the very best of their abilities. Our 2017 Dux achieved 98.8 and students were selected to receive an Australia Day Study Tour award, feature in Top Designs, Top Class Dance and the Bunjil VCE Exhibition.
Specialised transition days and programs, together with regular meetings and collaboration with local primary school teachers, help build a sense of connection and promote wellbeing for new students as they adjust to the change to secondary schooling.
The College continues to invest in offering broad subject choices and pathways including elite programs such as the High Achievers Program (Years 7 – 10), Basketball Academy (2017 State and National Champions) and Dance Academy (achieving Gold, Silver and Bronze at the 2017 Nationals). With significant milestones of celebration and achievement, students have enjoyed success and excellent results, which is recognised in the wider community.
Our students are supported in Learning Teams and motivated to make a difference in our school and the lives of others through assisting charities that deliver social benefits such as Casey Relay for Life.
Students will participate in excursions to local businesses and compete in competitions such as netball, volleyball, football, soccer, badminton, cross-country, athletics and swimming. Numerous extra-curricular activities such as performing arts and instrumental music tuition are offered to nurture students’ talents and hobbies. Students are offered the opportunity to extend their learning and trek out of their comfort zone on a World Challenge trip to Vietnam, Cambodia or by travelling to Central Australia, Indonesia or Europe. Basketball students have the opportunity to experience advanced basketball programs in the USA. The hard work of our teachers and support staff, leadership and parents together, allow these extra activities and programs to happen.
“The experiences provided for our students will make lasting memories. Today, we have multi-generational connections to past students who globally follow diverse career paths. I am particularly pleased that many of our past students are now enrolling their children at our College.” Ms Bolch said.
