Teaching and Learning
Beaumaris Secondary College encourages its students to strive for excellence in all their endeavours. We provide sequential teaching and learning programs that deliver a comprehensive, broadly based and culturally inclusive curricula in line with the F-10 Victorian Curriculum. We support the development of cognitive, intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies that enable our students to transfer what they have learned to new situations and new problems. By engaging in deep learning our students become creative, connected and collaborative problem solvers who gain knowledge and skills for lifelong learning and who can use contemporary digital technologies to enhance their learning.Year 7 and 8 Handbook Year 9 and 10 Handbook
Skills for the Future
We want our students to graduate as engaged global citizens armed with transferable skills.
Our students learn problem solving skills using Microsoft 21st Century Learning Design architecture and develop ‘learning-how-to-learn capabilities’ that enable them to thrive and contribute to ever-changing, new and challenging contexts.
The 21st Century Learning Design capabilities include:
- Knowledge Construction
- Real-world Innovation and Problem Solving
- Skilful Communication
- ICT for Learning
Project Based Learning
Project Based Learning (PBL) provides students with opportunities to discover passions and make connections through the process of meaningful inquiry.
We believe that problem solving is at the heart of learning, thinking and development. Our students are encouraged to be curious, ask questions and are taught how to engage in problems through PBL tasks.
Our expert teachers guide students to inquire, create and exhibit their understanding and knowledge. Through this process, students ask probing questions that link to their prior knowledge, engage in authentic problem solving individually or in groups and reflect on their learning.
