We strongly believe that co-education provides an invaluable opportunity for students to appreciate the different perspectives boys and girls bring to the community and to successfully experience the sheer complexity of gender.
In academic terms, boys and girls attain similar merits in HSC results, indicating that each gender is enhanced by the presence of the other. The students are comfortable with who they are and have a healthy, positive and respectful attitude towards each other.
Socialisation is undeniably one of the essential outcomes of schooling, and it is more naturally and fully achieved within the context of co-education. The social development of students, including the formation of appropriate values and attitudes, is a prerequisite for the ongoing wellbeing of our society.
Put simply, co-education prepares students for the world after school where ‘real life’ is rarely gender separated. Co-education is the best environment for the future.
