Auditorium

The exquisitely designed and cutting-edge auditorium at Newlands serves as a stage for memorable and spectacular performances that bring imagination and creativity to life. This facility is used to exhibit student events and activities. The artistically designed auditorium can accommodate 350 people.

In addition to fostering initiative and self-confidence in our children, these activities also help them acquire the 21st century skills, such as critical thinking, media & information literacy, communication & social skills, and self-management skills. Additionally, such events help foster a love of the arts and culture, moulding our pupils into sophisticated and cultured audiences.

Boarding

The boarding facility at BNI is far from the boarding houses you see around the country. Our boarding experience is unique because it emulates homliness, comfort and convenience. A typical day in the life of a boarder includes play, work and lots of fun. Scrumptious meals pepared in our very own kitchen are served in the student dining hall which buzzes with life and laughter. School hours are long and the day ends at 3:10 pm. By then, the students are done with classes, sports and lunch. Tea time is a way to unwind, relax and reflect on the day’s events. All students are required to sit for mandatory prep time in the evenings, the duration of which is flexible and depends upon exams/assessments schedules at school.

Dinner is served at half eight, and lights are out by ten. Weekends are special for boarders and something they all look forward to. Recreational activites which include trips to the shopping mall, theatre, parks, museums and sometimes to the nearby mountains are planned for the weekends. The holiday is also spent playing cricket, football and squash. All sports facilities, including the swimming pool, are accessible for boarders at all times. Life as a boarder offers new challenges, new opportunities, and new friends await those who join the boarding family at BNI. Sending children to a boarding school is one of the hardest decisions for parents to make. After all, who else can understand and care for them as you do? And what about the insecurity they may feel leaving home and all that is familiar? Your worries are natural, but once you visit our Boarding House and experience the unique environment that is protective and attentive like home and, at the same time, gives them space to grow, you’ll know you’ve made the right choice. The safeguarding of our Boarders is paramount and underpins everything we do. We invite you, as stakeholders in the community, to be our partners to embark together on this journey of success and to facilitate the creation of global leaders.

Libraries

We have two libraries at Newlands that serve students of all ages. In our opinion, a school library serves as a hub of learning and should offer necessary support for teaching and learning. Our libraries are much more than just regular libraries; they are a haven for a wide range of opinions, ideas, and points of view, as well as a place that encourages research as a lifelong learning tool. Our libraries house _______ books and other types of reference material, in addition to numerous digital resources on various topics. The libraries also have netbooks for research and multimedia projectors to enhance the learning experience.

It serves as a hub of resources for both individual and collaborative work for  Newlands staff members and students, alike. Students are issued books during library lessons, and there are also opportunities for a variety of activities like reading sessions, book reviews, word games, etc.

  • Physics Lab

School Meals

At Beaconhouse-Newlands, the whole student body is served our nutritious and hygienic meals, carefully prepared in-house by a professional chef. The menu is carefully chosen with the nutritional requirements of developing children in mind and created to encourage healthy eating practices. The monthly lunch menu is shared with the parent body in the beginning of every month.

Every day, kids assemble in the cafeteria for lunch. While this option enhances their social development through connection outside of the classroom, it also promotes self-service, good table manners, and healthy eating habits, which are just a few examples of yet another facet of personal development that is ingrained in our culture.

Swimming Pool

We at Beaconhouse-Newlands believe that keeping students physically active and mentally sharp requires involving them in healthy activities. Along with the gym and the sports complex, swimming is one such activity that provides fantastic physical activity and a great work out. Swimming is a great way for kids and faculty to cool off and have fun during the summer.

Our facilities also include a 25 x 19 indoor swimming pool that is open to children during school hours and is supervised by professional coaches. Additionally, we offer a 16 x 6 outdoor kiddie pool for the younger pupils.The  includes regularly scheduled swimming lessons. Our pools are maintained all year long, and they are equipped with the best filtration and cleaning systems to ensure that our students have a clean and secure swimming experience.

Early Years

At Beaconhouse-Newlands, the students in the IB PYP Early Years (ages 3-5) engage in transdisciplinary exploration and play. We aim  for language skills, motor skills, social skills, and academic skills to improve through a play-based approach to learning. Teachers set up a play-based learning environment that offers a variety of opportunities for interesting and meaningful play. The informal development of Approaches to Learning-  thinking, communication, social, self-management, and research skills happens concurrently. The needs of all students are catered for and more formal elements of schooling, such as letter formation, letter recognition, and the formative stages of Language and Mathematics are introduced when students demonstrate understanding or a readiness to learn more. Students will also develop their personal knowledge and understanding of the essential elements of the PYP, deepen their understanding of international-mindedness and develop the attributes of The IB Learner Profile.

Students in a PYP classroom take ownership of their learning by wondering, exploring, learning, sharing, reflecting, and taking actions in and beyond the school community. An inquiry-based unit of study, known as Units of Inquiry, incorporates all essential elements of PYP under a minimum of four transdisciplinary themes. In order to meet the various needs and interests of students, units of inquiry make the learning engaging, relevant to their life, challenging, and significant in a transdisciplinary model, which is globally significant and beyond the structured disciplinary subject areas throughout the Early and Primary Years.

We believe that the school library is a learning hub that should provide essential support for teaching and learning in the classroom. The Learning Tower is a three-storey building designed to create an environment where students can engage in different activities that promote a love of reading and research. The Learning Tower houses over 23000+ books and reference material, besides digital resources covering a wide range of topics. The ICT suite is on the top floor and has computers for research, multimedia projectors, as well as a dedicated space for robotics. It is a resource centre for both individual and collaborative work for students and staff alike. Library lessons are utilised for issuing books to students, as well as for providing opportunities for different activities such as reading sessions, book review competitions, vocabulary and word games. In line with our mission statement, we foster international mindedness by celebrating international days and events such as International Peace Day, World Dignity Day, Mothers’ Day, and World Book Day, which enable students to be aware of international issues as well as providing learning experiences. At the Learning Tower we teach our students to respect and protect resources, develop a strong sense of community, and increase their understanding of the world in which we live. It is our most powerful learning space for creating life-long learners.
