This School Teaches Girls Car Maintenance Skills

Earlier we wrote about the Montecastelo school that teaches their male students home economics. Today we would like to tell you about another school that has proven that essential life skills as car maintenance should be taught to both boys and girls.

Stella Maris College is an all girls Catholic school in Manly, Australia. Together with Galmatic, they recently organized a workshop for their year 11 students. In a fun, nonthreatening environment girls were taught valuable skills any young driver should have.

At the workshop, the students of Stella Maris College were taught such essential skills as how to change a tire, how to check tire pressure, how to check oil and coolant levels, and what to do in case of a car crash.

In many schools, these skills are not taught. And since nowadays boys are often taught such things by their fathers, young girls need such lessons even more.

What do you think about such car maintenance classes? Did they teach you these skills when you were in high school? Feel free to leave your comments below.


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
