An All-Girl Education
Moreton Bay College offers an all-girl environment from P-12 which fosters a positive atmosphere for learning.
Research evidence supports the proposition that girls and boys learn differently. Teachers are more easily able to accommodate and nurture these differences in abilities and interests in an all-girl environment.
The Alliance of Girls’ Schools Australia offers these reasons for a single-sex education:
- All the leadership roles are filled by girls: from the captain of the touch football team to the head of the student body; from the first violin in the school orchestra to the main part in the school play; and from all the committee chairs in every organisation to the leaders of every school club
- 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 for genuine achievement
- In an all-girl classroom, girls take on all the roles in the group, providing an atmosphere where students take the risks necessary
- 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
- Girl-centred learning leaves no doubt as to who receives the 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
- Girls in girls' schools achieve significantly stronger academic results than any other group in Australia
