Our school will be showcasing what we offer, which are classes from Early Years till Class O Level for Boys and Girls. Our school had initiated various club activities for all of our school students along with Life Skills Club as Beaconhouse espouses an Inquiry Based Approach which resonates throughout the curriculum, across every subject and class level.

As mentioned in Wikipedia, the World Health Organization in 1999 identified the following core cross-cultural areas of life skills: Decision-making and problem-solving, creative thinking, communication and interpersonal skills, self-awareness and empathy, assertiveness and equanimity, Resilience and coping with emotions and stress.

The objectives of our Life Skills clubs were to educate and guide students on how to be independent at handling real-life problems and to take responsibility for their actions. The goal of these activities was to make them take pride in doing their own work and by helping others. Through these activities, we aimed at improving problem-solving and creative thinking skills of our students, which in turn compelled them to be empathetic and self-sufficient.
