At Beaumaris Secondary College our culture reflects the identity, values and aspirations of our students and the wider community within which we operate. Our collaborative college culture is underpinned by the following principles:
Learning is Central
We are committed to providing a safe, inclusive and stimulating learning environment for all students. The college believes that students can only reach their full potential when they are engaged, healthy and safe. A progressive, supportive and shared school culture provides a strong foundation that acknowledges that student wellbeing and student learning outcomes are inextricably linked.
We promote a culture of respect, fairness and equity, and foster respectful relationships. This encourages a school environment that is inclusive and empowers all, celebrating the social and cultural diversity in our student body and across the wider community. We trust our students to display cultural competence at all times.
Health and Wellbeing
We recognise the benefit of physical activity on our students’ well-being and academic performance. Our students emerge as young adults with a solid understanding of the benefits a healthy mind and body. Our state-of-the-art facilities create opportunities for students and staff to excel, inspire activity and develop a respect for the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
Connection with the Local Environment
The school will promote environmental stewardship and meaningful connections to place. We interact with local schools, communities, families, resources and the environment to develop connections that support the social and emotional wellbeing of students and staff. We utilise our unique local environment in developing a culture of environmental care and proactive management whilst instilling the importance of sustainability.
Our students contribute in a meaningful way to the community and emerge from school as informed community members. The school is supportive and reactive to changing local needs; our unique offering attracts the best teaching staff at the forefront of 21st century education. Our staff are supported and encouraged to pursue their own learning and are recognised for their expression of our values as members of our learning community.
We encourage our students to be involved in their community by helping them establish connections and find their place in the world. Through their decisions and actions, students gain an understanding of issues within a global context and learn the skills to meet the challenges of today’s changing world.
