A Place for Parents

We would like to extend a special welcome to the parents and carers of our students. The ‘Skills for Learning’ website is part of our commitment to providing a quality education to each of our students. The ‘Skills for Learning’ website provides tools and resources that are designed to help your child develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed. It encourages your child to share in the responsibility for their learning by setting achievable goals which are supported by quality resources.

Beverly Hills Girls High School is committed to building a strong learning partnership with our school community and establishing a learning environment that extends beyond the classroom. It is therefore hoped that parents and carers will also take advantage of the website to support their child’s learning.
