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.
Watching seeds grow is amazing, as our students in Woodstock have discovered this term. In fact, it’s been like having a front row seat to the magic that is plants growing.
The magical world of Chinese lion dancing, Chinese instruments and traditional Chinese bracelet making came to Wenona recently and our Year 5 girls loved every moment.
We had ‘great expectations’ of our Year 10 Drama students this week and they didn’t disappoint, bringing Dickens’ story of hope, vanity, snobbery and love to life in two fabulous performances.
