2023 Enrolments

Posted on 03 May 2022


Dear Community

We will not be holding a physical Information Night this year (in order to keep everyone as safe as possible) we will be providing you with some virtual opportunities to get to know our staff, our school and what to expect when your young person starts at Belconnen High School.

An online Information Night will be held on Tuesday 24th May at 6pm via Google Meet. The details for this event will be provided closer to the date.

Over the coming weeks, I will be visiting our local primary schools to start the discussion with Year 6 students about transitioning to high school.

We are very hopeful that we will be able to host some school visits and tours for students in the coming months.

Looking forward to connecting with you throughout the year.

Harmony Week 2022

Posted on 28 Mar 2022

What is Harmony Week?


It is a time to celebrate Australian multiculturalism, and the successful integration of migrants into our community.  Harmony Week is about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians, regardless of cultural or linguistic background, united by a set of core Australian values.

On Friday 25th March all year groups were encouraged to wear orange. Orange is the colour chosen to represent Harmony Week. Traditionally, orange signifies social communication and meaningful conversations. It also relates to the freedom of ideas and encouragement of mutual respect. 

Here are some photos of the Year 10 Leadership class and Year 7 PCG’s with words of harmony.

Operation Stay Afloat

Operation Stay Afloat

A Yr 10 Leadership Project


Hi Belconnen community!

You may have heard a bit about our project in the notices. Basically we are trying to collect non-perishable foods and sanitary products to send over to Tonga. Tonga was hit by a tsunami after a volcanic eruption. Lila and I (Charlee) chose to lead the project of Operation Stay Afloat as part of our Year 10 project.

Mr Bradbury's cousin Hayley and her partner Lasi are from one of the small communities that was heavily impacted by this disaster. Mr Bradbury’s cousin is collecting our donations to send to Tonga in a shipping container.  

We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our school community.  Here are just some of the food items and products donated:

Canned goods, pasta, pasta sauce, rice, flour, female sanitary products, soap, toiletries, dishwashing liquid and detergents, oil, hand towel, toilet paper, milo, tea and coffee.

Since the tsunami hit, the Tongan communities have struggled to get a hold of things needed in a day to day life. Every little contribution makes such a big difference to those who have suffered from the tsunami.  

Giving is the greatest form of kindness.  

Lila and Charlee (Year 10 Leadership students)

We asked our feeder primary school Year 6 students if they have any questions about what high school is like.  Here is a slide of our answers to their questions from our Leadership group and our Principal, Mrs Rebecca Pearce.
