12 Things Girls From All-Girls Schools Definitely Did

There’s something about girls from all-girls schools, you can tell one when you see one. Even if we’re from different schools, the things we used to do were somewhat the same. Did you grow up in an all-girls school? If you did, here are 12 things that might be more than familiar to you:

1. Wear shorts underneath your skirt
Screw sitting like a lady. We did not choose the skirt life, the skirt life chose us. These shorts let us cross our legs, put our feet up on the table, and sit with our knees pulled up to our chest. These shorts let us be ourselves in our full, unlady-like glory.



2. Hug everyone you know, every time you meet
If I were to receive a dollar for every hug I gave back in school, I probably would have my retirement settled right now.



3. Write, fold and receive a ton of letters
We were expert letter folders. We would send them on their way through The Mutual Friend Express, or drop them off on our friends’ tables during recess. Chances are, you still have these letters collecting dust somewhere and you just can’t bear to them throw away.


4. Shower our friends with gifts on Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s day was a big deal in an all-girls school. Aside from the exceptional girl who actually had a boyfriend to celebrate V-day with, the rest of us were happy to shower our friends with flowers, balloons, chocolates, home-made cookies and what not. It was equivalent to Christmas.

5. Master changing into our PE attire over/under our uniforms
No matter what uniform we had, we found a way to not so much change out of our uniforms into our PE attires, as transition from the first to the second. It’s a skill I’m proud of to this day, mind you.

6. To hell with real bras – Sport bras FTW!



7. Ask openly if anyone had a pad in class
Some desperate souls would shout out, ‘DOES ANYONE HAVE A PAD?!’ but it was ok, because we all knew we’d end up doing that someday. Life was easier when we didn’t have to practice any kind of discretion about having our periods.



8. Steal tissue paper from the boy’s/teacher’s toilet
When there was no more tissue paper in the girl’s toilet, that is. (Why do we even need so many boy’s toilets in a girls school, anyway?)

9. Create your own family tree
We took “friends are the family you choose” quite literally – cliques became families. There were the mummies and the daddies (mostly, the tom-boys), and everybody else would be the kids. Sometimes, there were grandmas, grandpas and even extra-marital lovers.

10. Have the same handwriting as everyone else
I’m not sure why but it seemed like the majority of our school, myself included, had the same handwriting. Yes, there was actually a school-wide handwriting trend. Girls, you know what I mean!

11. Crush on a girl at least once
When you grow up in an all-girls school, you’d be numb to the fact that perhaps 3/4 of your friends were lesbians. And even if you’re straight as a rod now, you probably also had at least 1 girl-crush in school.

12. Fall in love with a boy from a all-boys school nearby
Somehow, there’s this strong attraction between girls and guys from all-girls and all-boys schools. There would be stories of how couples met at a nearby McDonalds or at church. Basically, both sides would find hang out at a common place and ‘pass by’ each other. Thinking about it really makes me laugh.

So, there you go. 12 things girls from all-girls schools can relate to. If you were from an all-girls school, you know that you’ll always be one at heart. Certain things were ingrained in us from our school days and have become a huge part of who we are today. Do you agree? Share this with those friends you shared these experiences with!

The only "notes" we passed around in boy's schools were our dad's porn mags and video tapes (yes - my time no VCD, DVD or internet de) ...  but there were lots of shared cumaraderie and memories ....  :P

If I may add #13,

pull a fellow female's bra strap from behind and release it, causing the victim to squeal and turn around (seen it many times among friends)  8)
