Gender Night Print E-mail

Hi we are Maxx and Sammi and we were the student leaders for gender night last night.

At the Snowy River Campus we have three nights where the girls and boys separate and talk to only their specific gender. The entire lesson is run by the student leaders for the day and the teachers don’t care what you say because we are in a safe environment.


The first lesson the girls had to talk about things that they found uncomfortable, but all of the girls expressed how they felt about the specific topic and we all had a great laugh. On the second gender night the girls had to think of personal questions we thought the boys were going to ask us and then we got to think of questions we wanted to know from the boys. For the boys it was the same thing as the girls but in a boy’s perspective. It was very funny to see that a lot of girls are curious about the same sort of topics. In the last gender night the girls were given the boys questions and we had to answer them. Some of the questions the boys asked us were a bit personal but the girls stood up and were confident with what they had to say and we all just had a laugh about what the questions were.


The boys and I gave the girls a sheet of questions last gender night and they had to answer it this gender night and the girls gave us questions and we had to answer them.

The questions ranged from what do you look for in a girl to why are girls bad drivers and the responses that the boys gave were really sensible but there were some answers that made the boys have a laugh. So when we answered the questions we had to go down to the fireplace in zone 3 and gave the girls our answer to their questions and they had to answer our questions.

Each person had to stand up one by one and tell an answer; it went girl, boy, girl, boy until we ran out of answers. But all up I think that all the boys had a great time answering the questions and I think the girls also had a great time the boys throughout gender night were sensible and also very, very funny because we asked funny questions.

Sammi and Maxx

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are four campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". Our fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
