Co-education v. Single Sex Education


It states the obvious, but the real world is not segregated. In co-educational schools, girls and boys work collaboratively, exchange ideas and debate issues. Importantly the presence of both genders adds to the richness and diversity of thinking and learning that fills all classrooms in all schools.

Outside the classroom, girls and boys stand side-by-side in leadership positions, play sport, attend outdoor education camps, combine in music groups, perform in plays and musicals and share recreational space.

In short, girls and boys interact with each other as equals in all aspects of everyday life. In doing so, they build a sound platform for personal growth, peer connectedness, relationships with other people and the development of appropriate value systems.
