What are Beaconhouse Online 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.
The groups will consist of students from across the national and international Beaconhouse schools, the students will be divided into groups according to these sets of classes: Class 3—5, Class 6—8, Class 9—10. Each set will be given a project based on a predetermined theme.
Each member is required to participate and contribute to the project. Each member will have a chance to use leadership skills at different stages of the project. They should put their strengths to use and learn from others to develop more skills.
The team members are required to display the following qualities at all times

Students will maintain a reflection journal to map their learning journey step by step during online collaboration. At the end of the project, each student will submit a short individual reflection as well as a reflection on the team.
