A rich learning environment
Wenona School, founded in 1886, is a global learning community, educating and empowering young women to serve and shape their world.
Wenona continues to embrace change to make the most of technology and other opportunities. A non-selective school, Wenona has a well-earned reputation for outstanding and impressive academic results.
Our students benefit from small class sizes, professional and engaging teaching and learning across a broad range of subjects, innovative programs and effective use of technology.
Wenona School is proud of our caring community and academic peer culture, where success is celebrated.
Girls enjoy the use of our Evening Study Centre, professional counselling and careers advice, as well as enrichment and extension.
Our broad co-curricular program, which includes performing arts, debating and many sports, extends the academic curriculum, providing experiences in leadership, cooperative teamwork and sportsmanship.
?That I may serve?
Respect and responsibility are core values for each and every person in the Wenonian community. Independent and non-denominational, we live the axiom that with great privilege and talent comes great responsibility.
Our motto at Wenona School, “Ut Prosim”, that I may serve, ensures our determination to make meaningful contributions.
Students of all ages carry out a range of voluntary activities to contribute to local and international communities.
Girls determine their own local service initiatives, while Wenona School is committed to a range of international hands-on ?service learning? projects which help students recognise their role as responsible global citizens. They teach at our sister schools in Vanuatu during school holidays, have helped improve an orphanage in Vietnam, and much more.
Many past students are proud to remain involved, enriching the School community for the benefit of current and future students.

We value individuality and the development of self-efficacy and optimism. A range of challenging activities at Wenona School help develop a love of learning, encourage risk-taking and foster confidence and independence.
