​Beaconsfield State School offers unique opportunities for real life learning through an extensive and dynamic range of academic, cultural, sporting and environmental activities and projects. Principal Brendan Smith said a key component of this was the school's award-winning Curriculum Connections Program. "Major student involvement  has occurred via our commitment to the Reef Guardians Project where classes have been involved with community group organisations associated with Turtle Watch, sand dune revegetation, wetlands protection and the annual, "Kids Teaching Kids" science conference and expo, that enables children to share and demonstrate their knowledge and expertise with students from other schools and community groups", Mr Smith said.

Vegetable gardens, composting and recycling, frog ponds, forest generation management and sustainable energy resources and strategies are all recent projects that students across the school have undertaken. The school also offers an extensive performing arts program, featuring instrumental music, choirs and school bands.

Sporting involvement and excellence is also encouraged, with both a vast range of individual and team sports available for students to participate in.

"Our community-minded school culture, coupled with experienced and enthusiastic staff, really enhance the opportunity each child has to receive a comprehensive and enjoyable learning experience", Mr Smith said.
