The Free-Mixing of Young Children in Schools and Whilst Swimming
Question:

British state schools are free mixed; so boys and girls study in them together; and are compelled to wash and swim in the same place. The girls can be naked at the time of washing or semi naked, and so some of the Scholars gave the verdict that if the girls are of a young age then there is no harm in that. What does your eminence see? And what is the Islamic method of covering for the young girl; and what is the age in which the Hijaab becomes obligatory for the girl?
Answer:

The free mixing of boys and girls whilst studying is Haraam (forbidden); as is their (the girls) mixing in a place of washing and swimming this is Haraam. Whether they be young in age or older, due to that which is found in it by way of the rousal of fitnah (trial) and the seeing of the private parts. Since it is a means towards wickedness and the undertaking of evil actions.
