Yes, please visit the BSC Language page for more information. 

I understand that most of the learning is digital but is there some writing?

Writing with a stylus on virtual paper or with a pen on physical paper is a vital aspect of our learning process at Beaumaris. Just as the pen is a tool, so is the laptop. Each learning area includes at least one formative assessment conducted on physical paper with a pen. For mathematics, a stylus serves as a virtual pen. The cultivation of skills and endurance with physical paper and pen begins in Year 7 and progresses through the upper year levels in readiness for VCE.

Why isn't Mandarin offered as a language option?

The selection of French and Japanese was based on the languages taught in local primary and secondary schools. Providing access to both a European and an Asian language is essential to our language program.

Do you offer before and after school sport?

Our school community is very active, with the majority of students participating in sporting clubs, which often limits their availability for school-based sports after hours. However, we provide access to a fitness centre for students in Years 9 to 11 before school. Additionally, teachers conduct training sessions during lunchtime and before/after school for various school sports.

Do you have bike sheds?

Yes, we provide convenient bike sheds via Reserve and Balcombe Roads where students can securely park their bicycles during the school day. While we offer a safe storage solution, we strongly recommend that students utilise bike locks to ensure the utmost security for their bikes.

No, the Department does not hold insurance for personal property brought to schools and it has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property.

Parents/carers of students who do not have student accident insurance, are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including the cost of ambulance attendance or transport, as well as any other transport costs. Parents/carers can purchase insurance policies from commercial insurers.
