Congratulations to all our debating teams for a strong finish to the season. Our Beaumaris C-graders won tonight, showing vast improvement in their first season of the competition, as did our D-grade team. The B-grade debate was a challenging, high quality affair, with a narrow but honorable loss to our team. Well done to all our speakers, you have done Sandringham College proud!

Congratulations to the 52 Beaumaris students who completed the 2013 Premiers’ Reading Challenge. Students in Years 7,8,9 and 10 read at least 15 books to meet the requirements of the Challenge. Students frequently recommended books to each other and read widely, often choosing a genre they had not attempted previously. Celebrations were held in the Library where students were presented with their certificates and then enjoyed a morning tea.
Training for this years event has been taking place on Sunday Morning on Beach Road for the last part of Term 3 and into term 4. With all of the students and parents putting some quality kilometres into their legs. Everyone is building their skill and confidence in preparing themselves for the event. This years ride will start in Mt Gambier and finish in Geelong for a total of 610kms.
