We are offering a Boys Only Homegroup program that provides a finely tuned blend of single and mixed gender learning to ensure our young male students are equipped for the real world. We will provide our students with all the advantages of gender specific teaching combined with the social advantages of a co-educational setting. Our teachers will apply teaching and learning strategies specially designed for an all-boys classroom and engage students in a curriculum tailored by gender.
The Boys Only Homegroup will explore and address gender related issues, delve deeper into concepts of masculinity and attitudes towards females; whilst seeking to challenge common stereotypes and prejudices. Research insists that boys learn best with problem solving and activity-based learning and at the core, what matters most, is the quality of the teaching and the sensitivity of that teaching to optimise student motivation. All male students are eligible to preference to be placed in the Boys Only Homegroup and there are no entry requirements for the program, other than the enrolment criteria outlined by DET.
