Wenonians young and old came together for Foundation Day to mark a special milestone: 130 years.
Wenona alumna Ms Kate Burleigh (1986), Managing Director at Intel Australia and New Zealand, gave this year's Foundation Day speech. She reflected on her experience as a student, and a mother in the Wenona community. Kate encouraged students not to focus on what Wenona can do for them, but how they can allow their experience at Wenona to enhance who they are as a person.
In a Foundation Day tradition, Wenona's youngest student Grace Walker-Barker cut the cake with Ms Burleigh. The School celebrated its birthday, and commitment to girls education, with cupcakes, singing and partying.
Perfectly imperfect. Two words that are polar opposite in their definition, yet only two letters shift their meaning!
On Wednesday, the Junior School Cross Country Carnival went ahead at St Leonards Park in slightly wet conditions.
It takes more than a spot of rain to scare off our alumnae, particularly when it comes to having breakfast with their daughters!
