On 5 and 6 March, King George Park, Rozelle was a picture of tents, marquees and colourfully dressed groups walking, running and cartwheeling as they joined in with the Sydney Relay for Life 2016 run by the NSW Cancer Council. 50 Wenona students and their parents set up marquees and tents beside the trees, looking across the beautiful water of Iron Cove. The Middle School was well represented with the 'Glowzillas', the 'Wenona Walkers' and the 'Wenona Heroes and Villains' stealing the show. They set up stalls and sold a wonderful array of baked goods, sweets and drinks. By the end of the evening they had raised a combined total of over $8,000! The 'Glowzillas', our fabulous Year 7 team, took out the lap honours with their 15 members walking over 1,200 laps (approximately 150 kilometres)!
Our Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh students grabbed their backpacks and headed outdoors during the July holidays, putting their training and teamwork to the test.
On Tuesday, Paige (Year 11) spoke at our Principal’s Assembly about the importance of celebrating Peace and Gratitude Day, and acknowledging the many freedoms we take for granted here in Australia.
This week, Wenona commemorated Anzac Day at our Principal’s Assembly for both Senior and Junior School.
