Brighton Secondary School has a vision to be the school of choice for the holistic education of boys and girls. In keeping with the National Educational Goals for Young Australians, we aim to promote and to lead world’s best practice for curriculum delivery and assessment and improve the educational outcomes for all students.
Please note that Brighton Secondary School is not a BYOD school, and students will need to purchase their device through our school. As such, students are unable to bring a device purchased outside of the school. This decision was endorsed by Governing Council in 2020.
We want our students prepared for global citizenship.
The Digital Learning program provides a vehicle for a personalised learning program and supports a constructivist approach to creating curriculum. This includes flipped classrooms, where the focus is on providing access to class content anywhere, anytime to personalise learning for students and make class time a place for deep, active learning.
Governing Council endorses the program and approves the financial commitment based on a formal poll of parents/caregivers.
Empowering our students to engage authentically in their learning requires access to and use of appropriate and relevant technology and online tools.
At Brighton Secondary School we are committed to developing digital citizens who can apply digital skills in flexible and dynamic ways. This includes being able to maximise technology and digital platforms to build their learning and to create new content for a range of purposes.
