Why A Girls’ School?
Girls’ schools are ‘can-do’ environments!
- Girls in girls’ schools achieve significantly stronger academic results than any other group in Australia
- Girl-centred learning leaves no doubt as to who receives their teacher’s full attention, or who will be taking maths, science and technology classes
- There is a greater sense of connectedness – listening, helping and accepting others’ points of view
- All the leadership roles are filled by girls: from the College Captain to the captain of the football team; from the first violin in the school orchestra to the main part in the school play; and to the leaders of every school committee
- In girls’ schools, girls see strong female role models, and understand that they too can achieve successful outcomes from their own efforts
- All activities are open to girls: they participate, influence and lead
- In an all-girl classroom, girls take on all the roles in the group, providing an atmosphere where students take the risks necessary for genuine achievement
- Girls thrive and excel in collaborative teams
- Teachers can match their teaching to the way girls learn and develop their courses to suit girls’ needs
- Girls can work through the challenges of adolescence without fear of embarrassment or harassment
- Girls can develop their relationships in a supportive environment
- There is no obstacle preventing girls from exploring a career in any area
- Girls’ achievements are celebrated
