Beacon Business Breakfast 2021

The first community event of the year, the Business Breakfast, was hosted by the Beacon leaders at Radcliffe’s Restaurant on Thursday 11 March.

A record number of 106 attendees enjoyed a delicious breakfast, and heard from guest speakers Allira Hornsby, Ella McCormick and Paige Doherty representing the students, Simon Wood, Principal of Echuca College representing the Beacon schools and Ben Hearn from the Campaspe Shire, representing the business community.

The leaders were introduced to the business community and presented with their badges by special guests, the Honorable Peter Walsh and the Beacon Board Chair Sue Turner. The students then read out the Leader’s Pledge.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and to those who offered assistance to our program this year - we appreciate you!

Some photos from the event - thanks to Beacon Leader Ryder McMullan for his photography skills.
