Educated decision

I

n life, there are many choices parents make for their children from the time they are nothing but a “twinkle in the eye”, as my dear old grandfather used to say. One of the most important decisions, and one that can cause a huge amount of stress for parents, is which school to choose for their children. There are more than 9400 schools across Australia. Of these, more than 2700 are independent schools, each offering something unique for students’ academic and broader education. And with so much to consider for their future generations, it’s no wonder mums, dads and extended families can find themselves in a pickle when it comes to making this decision. Is religious or secular a better choice? What about a larger school? Or should it be a smaller, single campus with fewer students? Is a single-sex school a better way to go than coeducational? Or is it better to have a mix of boys and girls? In this edition of The Weekly Review’s Independent Schools Guide, we’ll be looking to give parents and carers the information they need to make that decision a little easier. After all, schools shape students in myriad ways. Through schools, educators are able to introduce young minds to new ideas, knowledge and life skills. The school grounds are where students make lifelong friends and meet mentors who will influence them far beyond their formal years in education. And then there’s the discovery of what a student is most passionate about in their studies and lives. Whether that is something inside or outside the classroom – it can help them find their pathway to a happy life and a fulfilling career. And really, what more could a parent want for their child?

MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE

EXPERT TIPS FOR CHOOSING A SCHOOL It goes without saying that making important choices in life can be difficult. When it comes to a child’s education, there is, unsurprisingly, always an added element of stress to making the right decision. So how do parents navigate the difficulties of making a decision about the future for their families? Here’s what the education experts advise:

I N DEPE N DE N T SCHOOL S GU IDE 2018


Write a list

Attend school open days

The Raising Children Network and Centre for Adolescent Health suggests parents write a list to include the types of things they’re looking for in a school before starting the search. “Before your school search starts, it could help to come up with a list of five things that are most important to you [and your child] in your choice of a school. As you go through the schoolselection process, think about this list – you might want to add to or revise it as you gather more information.” More at: raisingchildren.net.au

Going along to school events, including open days, gives parents the opportunity to ask questions and see how the school works. Being able to see first hand the students and teachers in action will provide a good sense of the school culture, the layout, programs, facilities and other information you may be looking for as a parent. You can also try school fetes or concerts to check out what’s on offer.

Your finances & where you live Fees and other financial costs associated with a school will always inform the final decision any parent makes. While some parents will be looking for a school closer to home, others may consider boarding either interstate or (from) overseas as an option to ensure their child receives their education of choice.

Keep calm Associate Professor Helen Proctor, an education researcher with the University of Sydney, advises parents to make a calm decision: “There are so many pressures on contemporary parents that it sometimes seems as if anxiety is supposed to be the natural companion of parenting,” Proctor says. “Really most schools do a good job most of the time. “Most teachers want to do the best for your child. Most children are keen to learn, despite how they sometimes act. “No school is perfect – but a school’s, or teacher’s, imperfections sometimes become the challenges that provide the best learning experiences for young people.”

Talk to other parents T Parents can also get a good sense of a school, its culture, ethos and academic outcomes, through word of mouth. Chatting to the parents of children already at a school can give an insight that you may not otherwise get. They can be honest about the pros and cons of the school and let you know why (and how) they made their choice.

TAKE FIVE

“Before your school search starts, it could help to come up with a list of five things that are most important to you in your choice of a school.”

Research, research, research School websites are a really handy way for parents to find out about the school. Most schools will also have a socialmedia account that can give parents (and potential students) a look behind the scenes at what happens day to day.

Remember, you’re choosing for your child, not you While you may love the idea of a certain school, including your own alma mater, think about whether this is the best option for your child. Will they fit into the culture at the school and does it offer the types of subjects that play to their strengths, academically and otherwise? ●

DENOMINATION

n independent Anglican coeducational boarding and day school, Geelong Grammar School boasts an international reputation as a pioneer of modern education. From its origins in 1855, the school has always had a distinctive character. After outgrowing several Geelong locations, the school moved to a 245-hectare site on the edge of Corio Bay in 1914, creating the unique learning and living environment that exists today. In 1953 it established Timbertop. A remote campus in the foothills of the Victorian Alps, Timbertop is a unique educational adventure that teaches valuable life skills, building confidence, resilience and independence. The school became coeducational in the early 1970s, preparing students for the dynamic of the modern world through enabling boys and girls to live and learn alongside each other. It is Australia’s largest coeducational boarding school. Spread across four specialist campuses, it has a nonselective enrolment policy and approximately 1500 students, from early learning to year 12, including more than 850 boarders. Our transformational Positive Education program is complemented by rigorous academic programs that create wonder, curiosity and a desire to learn. Senior school students have the choice of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma for entry into tertiary study.

COEDUCATION OR SINGLE SEX? NEGOTIATING THE SOCIAL LANDSCAPE

20

I N DEPE N DE N T SCHOOL S GU IDE 2018


T

here has always been a lot of debate around what type of school is best for both the academic and wellbeing outcomes of young students. In Australia, parents are often weighing up whether it is better for their child to go to a single-sex school or to a coeducational school. It can be a difficult and complex choice to make. Not only because the findings of studies show single sex and coeducational schools are both good options for students academically – but also because parents are often considering how the choice will affect their maturing child emotionally and socially. Education researcher with The University of Sydney, Associate Professor Helen Proctor, says while many studies have been done and claims been made about the pros and cons of single sex and coeducation in Australia, there is no straightforward answer for parents making this choice. “Schools are such complex places and the gender make-up is one of many factors in schools,” she says. “A better question [for parents] to ask is how does the school manage its gender arrangements and what policies are in place to mitigate the downsides of either arrangement: coeducation or single sex?” Supporters of coeducation believe that being educated in a school with both genders reflects “real life”. That is, that once students reach university and/or the workforce, they will be learning and working with both men and women and being in a coeducational school better prepares students for this. While single-sex school supporters argue that classrooms are less distracting for young women and men, and each can be their authentic selves without playing into gender

stereotypes. In other words, young women feel less intimidated in science or maths classes and young men will perform music or theatre in front of their classmates. While many studies suggest that single-sex schools may become a thing of the past (a recent study stated that they would be obsolete by 2035), they are still a very popular choice in Melbourne and other Australian capitals. All-boys’ school Whitefriars College in the Melbourne suburb of Donvale agrees that single-sex education allows boys to develop without gender stereotypes. Principal Anthony Kirley says when making their choice, parents need to choose the school that best suits their child. “Young men have a particular need to be understood as males. The use of humour, rotational group work and kinaesthetic activities are essential for their growth,” Kirley says. “They are able to discuss topics of both refinement and sensitivity in a classroom without any view that it is a non-preferred way of thinking. “It is particularly important for boys who transition from primary school to have close male friends who can support them in and out of the classroom,” he says. “Our teachers specifically know the needs of young men and how to form strong relationships with them. “The old saying in boys’ schools, ‘boys learn teachers before subjects’, may not be grammatically correct, but the sentiment is very accurate. “We have a strong focus on developing men of conscience and character who are unafraid to be gentle men within our society.” ●

e all go to school to learn. Good schools produce solid academic results. Great schools teach life skills to go along with that. At Lauriston we do both, but we don’t stop at just putting in. Our difference is what we bring out. We help every student find their difference. Our innovative and experiential pedagogy, combined with a comprehensive wellbeing program, work together to provide a well-rounded educational experience that encourages students to achieve their best. Lauriston values good teaching and, combined with the latest technology, each girl can learn at her own pace and be ready for the challenges that lie ahead. Our goal is to connect students with choice and best-practice teaching and learning; we work daily to bring local and international connections back to Lauriston. Learning is a constant process that doesn’t end with the submission of an assignment or the passing of an exam. At Lauriston, ‘success’ is never the end of the story, it’s a launch pad towards new discoveries, innovation and understanding.

To become confident, self-assured women, girls need the right challenges. Loreto Toorak has created an environment where your daughter will be nurtured, challenged and encouraged to discover her true self. Excellent academic results are achieved each year, but this is only one aspect of our holistic approach to education. Established in 1924, the foundations began over 400 years ago with a truly remarkable English woman, Mary Ward. She overcame extraordinary opposition and hostility to found the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM), known as the Loreto Sisters. Today, there are seven Loreto Schools in Australia and more than 90 throughout the world. An extensive and challenging academic program is integral to the education of heart and mind, which is cherished at Loreto Toorak. A love of learning is fostered by specialist teachers who share a passion for their subjects, with programs that aim to foster individual needs. The opportunities we provide will challenge and extend your daughter, helping her to graduate with an inner belief that there is much she can achieve.

We focus on developing well-rounded, self-motivated students who are prepared to make their own mark on the world, and who have the compassion and drive to use their capabilities for the benefit of others. At Melbourne Grammar School, education is intentional. It is shaped by honesty to oneself and to others, humility in the pursuit of excellence, and active engagement with the broader community. We have a proud tradition of academic excellence and, year on year, our students achieve outstanding results. However, at Melbourne Grammar, success is also measured by a student’s integrity, their sense of responsibility and their greater understanding of the world around them. Our three well-resourced campuses cater for the needs of students as they develop. Our coeducational junior school, Grimwade House, provides girls and boys from prep to year 6 with a strong academic foundation within a nurturing environment. At Wadhurst, our middle school for boys in years 7 and 8, students build strong learning skills and a positive sense of self. And, in the Senior School, we support boys in years 9 to 12, to achieve academic success and personal growth. Boarding is available for boys from year 7 to 12.

stablished in 1923, Mentone Grammar is an Anglican independent school rich in tradition and contemporary in thinking. We take a leading role in educating girls and boys with our unique coeducational model that is responsive to children’s development from ELC to year 12. Mentone Grammar is renowned for its successful learning model of Together-Apart-Together, where girls and boys in the middle years (5-9) learn within a coeducational environment in gender-specific classes. In early learning through to year 4 and in years 10-12, students learn in a fully coeducational environment. We are ideally located by the beach and close to public transport. In addition to our Mentone campus, our school also provides 17 hectares of lush playing fields at Keysborough and a beachside camp at Shoreham on the Peninsula. Our Creativity Centre is an outstanding facility, which includes a 450-seat theatre, visual arts studios for painting, sculpture, drawing, digital photography, printmaking and visual communication design and specialist labs for robotics, animation, 3D printing, materials and food technology. In addition, there is a recording studio, which is part of an extensive new music school, and drama and dance studios.

SINGLE OR MULTI CAMPUS? DOES SCHOOL SIZE MATTER?

W

hen it comes to schools – size can matter – and many parents weigh up the benefits of sending their child to either a larger, multi-campus school or a smaller, single-campus one. For parents, this decision can include what’s on offer in terms of the curriculum, the facilities of the school, how active the school community is and, of course, whether their child will be supported and learn in these different environments. Associate Professor Helen Proctor with the University of Sydney says there is no research to definitively help parents choose between multi-campus or single-campus school. It comes down to which type of school parents believe their child will excel in. “There are just too many factors at play,” Proctor says. “Schools are big, complicated institutions. Some of them are the size of small towns. “And that’s before you even start to consider family and other factors. Anyone who has been to their school reunion should be able to understand this. “People even in the same class at a fairly homogenous school can have such different memories of their education a few years down the track and such different post-school lives.” Dean of Learning and Teaching at the University of Melbourne’s Graduate School of Education, Associate Professor Larissa Davies-McLean, says both types of schools have their positives and challenges.

34

I N DEPE N DE N T SCHOOL S GU IDE 2018

What matters most, she says, is the quality of teaching and learning within the school environment, whether it’s big or small. “There are different opportunities that children will have to experience in different learning contexts – wonderful learning can happen in a range of contexts,” she says. Davies-McLean says it’s good to keep debate going on different types of schools, but remembering at the core of it all is supporting teachers to be able to give children a quality education. That’s certainly been the focus of schools in Melbourne like Haileybury and Shelford Girls’ Grammar. Haileybury has campuses in Melbourne, Darwin and China and also delivers the VCE in China, Timor Leste and The Philippines. Haileybury’s principal, Derek Scott, says one of the main benefits of a multi-campus school is the students’ connection across Melbourne (and the globe). “The school’s international operations provide additional benefits to its students [giving them] a number of opportunities to travel abroad and experience new cultures.” While it is a large school with many campuses, Haileybury still has a tight-knit alumni community with around 16,000 members connected through clubs and events associated with the school. At Shelford Girls’ Grammar in Caulfield, the draw of a single-campus school is also its close community.

“Schools are big, complicated institutions. Some of them are the size of small towns.” - ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR HELEN PROCTOR


ISTOCK

Principal Polly Flanagan says their research shows that is only part of the appeal. “Our research tells us that parents choose Shelford because it is a small girls’ school with strong academic results. Parents like the fact that everyone is known and that they and their daughters can join a close-knit community. “A small school like Shelford will never be able to compete with the

facilities of very large schools and we are quite open about that. For example, we don’t have a swimming pool or expansive sports stadium. With MSAC (Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre) so close, we don’t think that matters. “What does matter is valuing our best assets; our teachers, our students and their families and the quality relationships that they build and nurture.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY

Our purpose is to “educate and empower our women to make a profound contribution to their world”. This purpose statement reflects our commitment to educate each student, not just academically, but holistically with the goal of empowering her and building her confidence and resilience to respond to change and to live her life with a future focus. Our expert and dedicated teachers are privileged to work with students to guide their heads and their hearts in all they do. Sacré Cœur is built upon a proud tradition of sharing our gifts and talents and for providing an optimal educational outcome in a caring and supportive environment. At the heart of a Sacred Heart education is a deep respect and concern for each student’s wellbeing. We believe that positive relationships lie at the heart of learning and for students to be ready to learn, they must first feel happy and secure. Our objective is to build and develop connections to maximise capabilities and opportunities for respectful and mutually beneficial relationships, ensuring all students have their emotional and social wellbeing carefully nurtured. ‘Sacré Cœur Women Shape the World’ reflects our ongoing aspirations for our young women.

ounded in 1878, Xavier College is a Catholic school within the Jesuit tradition. A Jesuit education seeks to encourage self-reflection so that the heart, mind, body and spirit may become fully engaged to serve the wider world. Xavier College aspires to “set hearts on fire” by an educational commitment to a faith that does it justice. At Xavier, we challenge our students to pursue excellence in all things, both within and beyond the classroom. Education for life in the true sense embraces the intellectual, spiritual, moral and social aspects of life. This ensures that each individual achieves their full potential. In addition to its strong academic initiatives, including university extension programs, Learning Enhancement Centres and IB (Primary Years Programme), Xavier College offers an extensive range of music, sports, and co-curricular activities, including community service and overseas exchange programs. Xavier regularly features in the annual list of highestperforming schools in the Victorian Certificate of Education. It is fundamentally committed to scholarship and to the intellectual development of the students entrusted to the college. While Xavier College is an historic school, it also works to embrace the many opportunities presented by the 21st century.
