Beerwah students step up to podium

On Monday 21st August, Beerwah High’s Academic & Cultural Cup ceremony witnessed the emergence of a new approach for the ninth iteration of celebrations.  The top three scoring students of each cohort were presented with gold, silver, and bronze medallions atop a stunning new champion’s podium in school colours. 

Teachers and students were entertained by an array of talent which included performances by the multi-award-winning BSHS Dance Company, grooving tunes by the Beerwah High Concert and Stage Bands, and an electrifying jam by some resident guitar gurus.

Congratulations to Team Tunbubudla, who retained their crown atop the Academic & Cultural Cup for an incredible sixth time.  Their maroon mortarboard once again adorns the top of the Academic & Cultural Champions’ trophy, continuing their dominance of this prized crown of academia and culture.

Our eighteen champions became the first BSHS students to sign the Scholastic Almanac as medallists of specific colour.  They added their names to the parchment pages of the beautiful leather-bound book containing achievements of champions past.  Our 2023 champions were thrilled with their generous prizes provided by some very supportive local businesses.  A huge thank you to Vianta Espresso & Bar, Aussie World, Blast Aqua Park Coolum, Australia Zoo, Fleur Emporium Beerwah, Spinners Bar & Bowl Caloundra, Laserzone Kawana, and The Coffee Club Beerwah for their generous backing.
