No matter which class your child is placed in, all children in the grade/stage will experience collaboratively planned teaching and learning strategies.

Teaching and Learning Programs

At Beacon Hill Public we believe all children should enjoy learning and experience a broad curriculum. Our highly successful programs are developed by the teachers based on the National Curriculum documents, key learning continuums and the Quality Teaching Framework. The key learning areas are supported through the use of integrated technology such as iPads, laptops digital cameras and interactive whiteboards.

There are six key learning areas including Mathematics, English, Science, Personal Development Health and Physical Education, Human Society and Its Environment/HIstory and Creative and Performing Arts.

All students are provided with learning experiences according to their stage of development.
The stages of learning are:

  • Early Stage 1 Kindergarten
  • Early Stage 1 - L3 - Language, Learning and Literacy - Language, Learning and Literacy (L3) is a research-based Kindergarten classroom intervention, targetting text reading and writing. It focuses on providing rich literacy experiences to assist all students to become sucessful readers and writers. During the daily literacy session, the students receive explicit instruction in reading and writing strategies in small groups of three students. Students then partcipate in independent individual or group tasks.
  • Stage 1 - Years 1 & 2
  • Stage 2 - Years 3 & 4
  • Stage 3 - Years 5 & 6

Teachers are continually provided with updated courses and are engaged in Action Learning Projects to enable them to become familiar with newly developed syllabus documents and various programs implemented in our school.

Our school's curriculum policies reflect the requirements of the Board of Studies and the Department of Education and Training and encourage students to participate in a wide range of activities while succeeding to their best ability.

At Beacon Hill Public School we aim to provide all children with a quality education by catering for their individual learning needs. Our quality teaching staff possess a diverse range of skills, talents and abilities which contribute to effectively providing all children with a wide range of extra curricula opportunities and specific curriculum areas.

Our teachers use a balance of teaching styles throughout the school day to cater for the student's individual differences and preferred learning styles. Some of the ways we teach include whole class instruction, group work based on ability, mixed ability groups, working with a partner, team teaching, individual learning programs, interactive whiteboards (Smartboards and Ipads), computers, video conferencing and bookwork.

The wider community are extremely important and valued by Beacon Hill Public School as partners in learning and we welcome parents, grandparents and community members openly into our classrooms.
