Learning That Matters
Learning That Matters represents six pillars that represent our approach to providing our students with an holistic education. At Beaconhills we focus on the whole child to best prepare them for the world they live in.
Our Early Years to Year 12 program is divided into 5 sub-schools that we believe best represents the stages and ages of our child’s learning journey.

At all times, you are required to treat such information with the utmost confidence and to respect the privacy of others. A breach of confidentiality or confidence will result in disciplinary action, which may result in termination of your placement.
