Benefits of Choosing A Girls' School

Genazzano recognises that students learn in different ways. In an all-female classroom from Prep to Year 12, girls develop the confidence to take risks necessary for genuine achievement. Research tells us that students in all-girls’ schools achieve significantly stronger results than any other group in Australia. Genazzano specialises in girls’ education and provides an environment to inspire and nurture your daughter’s learning. With benefits such as academic advantages, equal opportunities and strong role models to look up to, a girls’ school is the ideal place for your daughter to thrive and excel.


Using an approach that recognises gender differences enables girls to live up to their full potential and feel comfortable being themselves.


Role Models

Role modelling in a girls’ school is a natural occurrence and every Genazzano student benefits from seeing in the older girls the kind of young woman that she will become. At every level of a girl’s learning, she will be challenged, motivated and supported by a highly qualified teaching body. All the student leadership roles are filled by girls: from the lead in the College musical to the School Captain, students witness strong female role models and are encouraged to achieve successful outcomes from their own efforts.


Acknowledging the achievements of others is important in recognising your own potential and drawing inspiration from the work of others.
