Wenona School Limited
In Education

Vision and Values
Every part of life at Wenona is built on a deep understanding of how girls think, work and feel. The research shows girls feel ablest to stretch themselves in single-sex education environments. In and outside of the classroom, we provide guidance and encouragement for our students to become confident, resilient, graceful women.

Our Vision
To educate and empower young women, in a global learning community, to serve and shape their world.

Our Mission
To provide a preeminent global education for the girls in our care by developing a contemporary, innovative and engaged learning community, committed to the inherent value and potential of each child.

Our Purpose
To deliver world-class, contemporary, relevant education for girls, with a culture based on positive, respectful relationships, a focus on leadership and service.

Our Motto
Ut Prosim, that I may serve


The Renaissance Woman
A ‘Renaissance woman’ is immersed in a holistic education that spans academic learning across a diverse curriculum, including STEM, ethics, philosophy, culture and humanities, creative and imaginative expression and physical development.

This woman cultivates emotional intelligence; explores a deeper understanding of her identity; finds purpose through a connection to community and gains confidence in the exercising of leadership.

Our aim is to help our girls graduate Wenona as Renaissance women; creative, resilient, articulate, well-educated, filled with a sense of humour and a capacity for adventure. We achieve this in two ways. The first is by implicitly modelling these qualities throughout our School, weaving them into our curriculum, our teaching style and our expectations of our students. The second is explicit, through the Renaissance Studies courses our students undertake. Modelled on the Socratic method of teaching, a form of cooperative dialogue and debate that encourages critical thinking, there are no ‘right answers’ in the course. The point is to consider, contemplate and question.

Renaissance Studies began with Year 12 students in 2013 and has since been extended to Years 5, 7, 10 and 11. It is our intention that every student from Kindergarten to Year 12 will benefit from this unique, life-enhancing course in the near future. Each year group has a stage-appropriate focus. They are:

Year 5: Ethical questioning arising from moral dilemmas
Year 7: Adolescent psychology and social engagement
Year 10: Sociology with a focus on gender and the place of women in society
Year 11: Politics and religion with a focus on contemporary global issues
Year 12: Life matters; topics and information to prepare girls for life beyond school.
