I teach in an all boys school having 5th class last year I found it really interesting working with all boys in comparison to a mixed school. In one particular instance this year, the school council decided it would be a good idea to plan a soccer match between 6th class students and staff. When having the conversation with the boys in my class , they came to the conclusion that it wouldn’t be a fair game as the staff did not have enough male staff members. We had a very interesting conversation about male/female athletes and how gender doesn’t mean you are better or worse at sports. We spoke about how they didn’t get an opportunity to play sports with girls much as they are in an all boys school, this then lead to the idea of collaborating with the girls school next door for a mixed league next year!
