Dare to Do, Achieve and Lead

Fostering a spirit of confidence, collaboration and daring, 抖阴精品 seeks to be a springboard for our students to fly and on their journey to challenge gender stereotypes. Our all girls learning environment offers this opportunity to every student as they explore who and what they can be, their best self, for themselves and for others. We seek to inspire our students to flourish as young adults capable of anything individually, collectively and in partnership with the local and wider community.

As an all-girls school, 抖阴精品 proudly fosters a stimulating learning community that nurtures academic achievement, positive female leadership and aspirational pathways without unconscious biases or gender stereotypes.

At 抖阴精品, students are challenged to participate fully, express their voice, develop self confidence, embrace diversity and be their best selves within a safe, supportive and respectful environment. The classrooms, corridors and common areas are vibrant spaces in which to engage in deep learning, ask questions and exchange ideas without distraction.

Within the 抖阴精品 environment, students are consistently exposed to positive role models demonstrating the ability of young females to apply themselves across a range of disciplines and roles. From STEM to the Arts and sport, every scientist, debater, designer, AFL player and leader at 抖阴精品 is a girl. The strong community links within the 抖阴精品 Alumnae network provide additional aspirational figures and reinforce the potential pathways every 抖阴精品 student can pursue both within and beyond the gates of Charles Street.

Avila鈥檚 academic, wellbeing and co-curricular programs are tailored specifically to meet the needs of girls and young women and provide a host of opportunities to expand horizons and discover individual strengths, interests and passions. Both formal and informal peer mentoring opportunities exist together with the chance for students to inspire and lead others.

Through the regular joint activities with 抖阴精品鈥檚 brother school Mazenod College and neighbouring Salesian College, 抖阴精品 students have the chance to collaborate, socialise and learn with boys. Active participation in co-curricular programs on offer such as Building Bridges, Public Speaking and Debating, the Amazing Spaghetti Machine and Rotary Youth of the Year also provide forums to work together with students from many other schools.
