Junkee: Sydney Boys' High School prefects use their privilege to echo women's voices on Why Feminism Is Important To Them.

Might have been more effective if the boys spoke about why feminism was important to them, personally, but amplifying women's voices is a start.

Also worth noting: Sydney Boys' High is a selective school - entrance exams, high intelligence/intellectuality. As such, it has a large non-white population, who would also experience racial discrimination and prejudice as part and parcel of their presence in Australia, whether born in Australia or born overseas. Consequently, these boys have more ability to perceive injustice than, say, The Kings School - a non-selective, private (tens of thousands of dollars in fees per year) school where there are more white males with money and privilege and ignorance.
