Wenona’s small and friendly boarding community welcomes girls from all over Australia and elsewhere in the world, who enjoy academic benefits and diverse opportunities in a vibrant community. Established in North Sydney in 1886 with the motto Ut Prosim, that I may serve, Wenona caters for up to 50 boarders from Years 7 to 12, who live in recently refurbished heritage accommodation in the heart of the School. Wenona’s vision is to educate and empower young women in a global learning community, to serve and shape their world.
Wenona’s central yet safe location is right next to green and spacious St Leonards Park, and just a short walk from North Sydney Station and Sydney Harbour. On weekends, girls experience Sydney life through activities such as visits to the Aquarium, walking across the Sydney Harbour Bridge to the Rocks Markets and Darling Harbour.
Boarders waste no time travelling to and from school. Those involved in Wenona’s many sporting, debating and cultural activities enjoy being right on site for training, rehearsals and many competitions and performances. The Boarding House is connected to Wenona’s Information Centre. A dedicated prep supervisor helps Middle School students with their homework. Senior College boarders have access to the Evening Study Centre (ESC), open from 5pm to 8pm Monday to Thursday, and staffed by teachers from all curriculum areas. We pride ourselves on providing a safe and supportive environment for all girls in our care. Girls enjoy independence, respect, flexibility and fun as well as ample opportunities to pursue a wide range of academic and other activities.
