The School has been granted an exemption from the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) under the Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (Vic) to provide the School with the ability to maintain a coeducational balance by differentiating between students based on gender. The exemption is in force until 30 March 2024.
The exemption has been applied predominantly at Toorak Campus, where there is a gender imbalance, with more boys than girls. Toorak Campus is positioned in an area which has a high concentration of single sex girls’ schools and the exemption has enabled the School to for example, structure enrolments lists to target prospective female students, offer places to female students, offer incentive rebates or scholarships for girls at particular year levels, or structure student class numbers to address a gender imbalance.
Our School strongly believes that coeducation sets our learners for success, and we want to ensure that all students have the benefit of coeducation across all our campuses.
Our School also values diversity and inclusivity. Everyone has the right to feel safe, valued and accepted, regardless of race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation. We actively promote an inclusive, respectful and connected School culture that values the participation of all students. The exemption from the Equal Opportunity Act will not dilute our commitment to nurturing a learning and working environment that is positive and supportive for all members of our School community.
