Wenona is an independent girls’ day and boarding school in North Sydney, established in 1886 with the motto Ut Prosim, “That I may serve”.
Fifty girls from from international, rural, regional and remote locations from Year 7 to Year 12 call Wenona home during term.
Wenona aims to inspire students to become “Renaissance women” who are creative, resilient, articulate and well-educated, filled with a sense of humour and a capacity for adventure.
A Renaissance woman is one with a strong moral and ethical outlook, raised to value service and to be a proactive and positive voice within local, national and global communities.
Service Learning is embedded in the curriculum, enabling girls to be involved in a range of community projects and tours in Australia and overseas. Diverse opportunity is a focus, and students are immersed in academic learning across a STEM, ethics, philosophy, culture and humanities, creative and imaginative expression and physical development curriculum.
Girls can participate in a range of sports, performing arts, creative arts, debating, and clubs.
Wenona offers scholarships to assist girls from all backgrounds. As well as academic and music scholarships, there are boarding and foundation (or means-tested) scholarships available, with registration now open for entry in 2019.
Registration for 2019 academic, boarding and music scholarships is available online, with a scholarship exam held at Wenona on Friday, March 2, 2018.
Applicants for boarding scholarships sit this exam and submit a brief resume to give information about their interests, abilities and community involvement.
Foundation scholarships are available through the Wenona Foundation and awarded to students whose families would not otherwise be able to provide a Wenona education.
Registration for entry to Wenona in 2019 will close on Thursday, April 12, 2018. Tours are available.
