User Guide To Girls Schools

A girls' school is an institution that provides education only to female students. This practice was predominant before the mid-twentieth century and advocated on the basis of tradition and religion in many parts of the world. Despite the growing number of coeducational schools in the country, there are still many exclusive girls? schools in Australia.

Despite growing criticisms about single-sex education institutions and that there was no evidence that single-sex schools were consistently superior, it has been observed that girls who attended an exclusive girls? school fared better than girls from coeducational schools in their examinations. Also, girls were observed to have better results in their subjects if they went to a girls? school instead of coeducational schools. It was also observed that women who went to girls? school went on to earn higher wages than women who had gone to coeducational schools.

The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations is the government agency that leads the country?s education and workplace training as well as transition to work. It collaborates with the different government agencies with the states and territories to provide easy access to educational services and support programs to the Australian people. It also aims to increase workforce participation and promote fair work practices in Australia.

Some advantages of sending your child to a girls' school

  • There are fewer distractions from the opposite sex.
  • Teachers can use techniques geared toward girls for better learning.
  • Some research and reports from educators suggest that girls? schools can broaden the educational prospect of boys and breaks down gender stereotypes.

Tips for choosing the best school for your children

  • Choose a school based on leadership instead of choosing whether public or private. If the leadership of the school is good, then you can expect the best service and education for your children.
  • The school must share the same values as your family. Consider the policies in place regarding behavior, punctuality and dress codes.
  • Does the school provide opportunities for growth other than in academics? A school must also provide extra-curricular activities that would hone the skills and talents of the child.
  • The school must have a procedure regarding disciplinary issues that would support the child.
  • It is important for a school to have a Parent Teacher Association to foster interaction between students and other members of the community.
  • A good school does not enforce a single religion or ideal to the students, instead it promotes the growth of open-minded students who are interested in learning about spirituality.
  • The school must have activities and projects that help the community for the child to develop empathy and a sense of social justice.
  • Consider the costs of sending your child to a particular school and see if you can afford them.
  • Choose a school that is near your home so as not to waste the time spent on travelling to and from school. If there is no other option, try to make the travel time fun and exciting for the child.
