What are Beaconhouse Global Projects?

Effective and transformative global learning offers students meaningful opportunities to analyse and explore global challenges. Beaconhouse has embraced this reality, and is introducing a world-class education platform the “Beaconhouse Online Global Projects”. Through this initiative, Beaconhouse hopes to bring all its students together from the national and international Beaconhouse schools, with the aim to unite our young communities and support them in creating their own network of learning and collaboration. Global learning enhances students’ sense of identity, community, ethics, and perspective and encourages them to:

  • collaborate respectfully with diverse others.
  • learn to take responsible action in contemporary global contexts.
  • evaluate the goals, methods, and consequences of that action.
