Beacon Foundation


Melba College is proud to be recognized as a Beacon School. Following on from 5 years of involvement on the previous Maroondah and Croydon campuses, the program has become self-sufficient and embedded element of the curriculum at Melba College.

The Beacon Foundation is a national non-profit organisation that works in more than 180 secondary schools across Australia, helping inspire students to either stay in school and increase their educational engagement or choose a positive pathway that leads to employment. Driven by a dedicated team of Beacon Student Ambassadors selected from Year 10, the Program provides invaluable opportunities for students to engage with local business within the community and wider Maroondah Council region to explore future employment and careers pathways.
