Beaconhouse Learner Profile
By emphasising a dynamic combination of knowledge, skills, critical and innovative thinking and global awareness, the Beaconhouse Learner Profile serves as a cornerstone for what it means to be a Beaconhouse student. Our students come from a variety of social, cultural and economic backgrounds, nationally and internationally. The learner profile identifies common attributes that connect Beaconhouse students around the world. Beaconhouse promotes holistic learning that addresses students’ intellectual, emotional and physical development, preparing them to become lifelong learners and responsible global citizens. The ultimate aim of the learner profile is to serve as the foundation for our curricula and teaching philosophy.
The Beaconhouse Learner Profile cannot be implemented only through the curriculum: parents and educators serve as role models for its attributes and values that are then recognised and emulated by learners. The learner profile’s success depends on the extent to which it is lived as an exemplar of caring, responsible and ethical global citizenship.
