Beaconhouse Learner Profile
The Beaconhouse Learner Profile translates our mission of benefitting students, the community and the wider world into a set of attributes essential for holistic development. The learner profile embodies values and beliefs that are essential for students to learn and grow into responsible citizens of the world. These values are consistent throughout Beaconhouse’s Early Years, Primary, Middle and Secondary schools. The learner profile helps to create a community of learners who are empowered, inspired and aware. With these attributes, students are empowered to actively engage with the complex world beyond schooling – a world to which they can contribute with compassion and a sense of responsibility.
Creative & Innovative
Our students aspire to generate original and meaningful ideas which add value to their personal lives and to the communities they inhabit, in the 21st century. Through our local and international curricula, and with the direct support of school heads and teachers, Beaconhouse students draw on inspirational examples from human history to be creative, imaginative and innovative in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding.
Through local and international curricula, our teachers facilitate and support students to create logical, coherent and creative connections between ideas. Through multidisciplinary collaborations, open-ended investigations and by reflecting on their own critical thinking processes, teachers and students strive to identify, evaluate and solve problems systematically.
Our students are curious about their surroundings. Through our local and international curricula, facilitated by teachers, our students develop an ingrained inquisitiveness towards an enhanced understanding of the world in which they live.
Our school heads and teachers support all Beaconhouse students to become dedicated, dependable, resilient and unwavering in their quest to acquire knowledge and understanding.
All Beaconhouse schools promote and support good works and community service so our students can empathise with others, ensuring the development of a more just, caring and compassionate world.
Our school heads promote student accountability and an informed responsibility for an individual’s actions. Through the curriculum, our students and teachers develop a spirit of honesty, integrity, equality and fairness.
Through our local and international curricula, school heads and teachers support and facilitate our students to critically analyse and question global issues based on three principles:
To learn that the increased imbalance of income, the unavailability of quality education for the poor and the digital economy are fundamentally altering the nature of employment and the right to earn a livelihood.
Global & Social Cohesion
Mass migration from countries stuck in war and poverty create problems on a global scale. Through our local and international curricula teachers and students discuss the integration of diverse groups of people and ways to avoid the growth of extremist ideologies.
Our local and international curricula prioritise the investigation of sustainable goals through becoming cognizant of the consequences of overconsumption of non-renewable energy sources. Schools promote self-awareness and ownership of responsibility in their students to prepare themselves for a greener future and realize the impact that they have on the lives of future generations in the face of increasing chances of environmental degradation, imminent global warming, and rapid climate change.
Holistic and Self-Sufficient
Our schools promote and support healthy and sustainable life styles, to ensure physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of all Beaconhouse students. Our schools ensure that all Beaconhouse students are able to make conscious decisions for smart health choices today, and for the future. They are actively involved in physical and creative activities both inside and outside the school, leading to heightened development of their mind, spirit and body. All BSS schools prepare students at various levels for first aid, medical emergencies and unfortunate natural disasters through a four tiered model; Prevention, Preparedness, Response and Recovery.
Heads of schools and teachers promote the ethical use of social media and digital technology to enhance teaching and learning. Beaconhouse teachers and students are expected to create a safe digital environment where they may share, communicate and disseminate digital knowledge and information ethically, conscientiously and responsibly. Our schools proactively keep themselves updated on newer technologies and continue enhancing digital citizenship and awareness by collaborating and engaging with local and international technological organisations.
