Newlands, Multan is currently pursuing the status of an “Interested School” for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP).
We use inquiry as our pedagogy for engaging students in the deeper understanding and ownership of the learning. Our whole school action plan is centred on authentic inquiry democratising our learning, and we constantly seek evidence for this research.
Our curriculum is engaging, challenging and relevant, and actively supports the developmental differences and learning styles of the students. It is framed according to the pedagogy of the IB-PYP. Our students actively construct meaning based on their prior knowledge and their engagement with the curriculum and Units of Inquiry. They investigate important subject matter by formulating questions, proceeding with research, experimentation or observation which leads to their own responses to the issues.
Technology is a key focus and our “digital natives” are guided in their use of familiar and new technologies as one method of engaging with peers, teachers and experts beyond the classroom. The aim of all IB programmes is to develop internationally-minded people who help to create a better and more peaceful world.
Quality teaching, an enabling environment and a will to improve on our work are areas that are integral to the BN philosophy and will remain our focus for the coming years.
We look forward to creating exciting possibilities for learning, development and growth in the years ahead and are enthusiastic about continuing as members of a community of lifelong learners.
Beaconhouse-Newlands, Multan offers its students an extensive co-curricular programme that provides them with opportunities of hands-on experience for applying their homeroom learning to real world situations.
Drama and Art Club
The Drama and Art Club provides opportunities to students to participate in multiple theatre productions including comedies, dramas, musicals and plays. Such activities help students develop coordination, concentration, memory, oratory skills and improved communication and social interaction skills. The children explore their individual talents and feel greater confidence as they discover their abilities. The children also discover the world of art in 3D. They will get exposure to different mediums of art and enhance their creativity with various materials.
The Sports Club strives to create an inspirational environment for children to engage in various sport activities including swimming, kid’s athletics, gymnastics, aerobics and martial arts. Sports also encourage teamwork and fair play, teaching kids’ valuable lessons in cooperation, respect for others, time management and an active lifestyle. They learn lifelong lessons about sportsmanship and can enjoy the excitement of competition while understanding it isn’t always about winning, but about participating and giving your best effort.
The Environment Club plays an important role in creating environmental awareness amongst the future generation. This fosters a greater understanding of the natural and human environment in which our students operate and the impact they have on it. Our students learn to be better conservationists of their immediate environment. They develop an organic pathway where they grow vegetables and plants and learn do-it-yourself activities. The in-house bird aviary helps students develop an understanding about natural animal habitats.
The purpose of the Culinary Club is to provide an environment for students to, socialise, be creative, learn cooking skills and have fun. Besides learning about the nutritional values of different foods, students get an opportunity to develop mathematical and reading skills. Our students develop their own recipe books, learn table etiquettes and assist a professional chef in the kitchen.
Robotics is the science and technology of robots, their design, manufacture and application. Robotics increases a child’s spatial visualisation skills. It also strengthens their innovative and creative abilities. In the BNM-PYP Robotics Club, students will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities and explore, at a beginners level, the design and programming process of a robot. Students will work, build and see in 3D, through magical magnets, LEGO and B-bots. They will accomplish certain tasks which include, but are not limited to, line-following, motor-parking, avoiding obstacles and solving real world problems.
Taekwondo is the modernized way of an old oriental art of self-defense or unarmed combat in a hard and linear style. It uses strong blocks, punches, and kicks to disable an opponent. One facet that distinguishes Taekwondo from other martial arts are the quick and powerful kicking techniques for which Korean arts are known. Taekwondo has several physical and mental benefits. Our students learn conditioning, building endurance, and developing muscle tone. Increased concentration and focus are just some of the mental benefits. The extensive Taekwondo programme includes aerobic, anaerobic and training activities to help build strength and flexibility.
