If you're looking for fun, Wenona has you covered on Saturday 10 September, with four big events converging to produce a festival of family entertainment.
The Wenona Spring Fair
Starting at 10am, the Wenona Spring Fair is the biggest community event on our calendar and the perfect recipe for a great day out.
From fabulous food and coffee to hard-to-find boutique gifts, it's a treasure trove of market stalls, fashion, jewellery, books, arts and crafts, and more.
This year's highlights include the wine and cheese stall, delicious barista coffee and bakery delights from our Alumnae community, artisanal treats and homewares from Wenona boarding families, and stunning blooms sourced fresh from Sydney's Flower Markets.
All the students’ favourite rides and sideshows will be available. Remember to purchase your ride wristbands, tokens and raffle tickets in advance here.
Athenaeum Open House
Do you know a future Wenona student? Invite them to our Athenaeum Open House between 12pm and 2pm. It's a chance to experience this beautiful new addition to campus and see firsthand the way it’s boosting our senior students' School experience.
The Wenona Enrolments Team will be on hand to speak with families, or you can take a self-guided tour and view demonstrations from our STEM, Science and Technology students, as well as our athletes, dancers, and musicians. Registration is not required - just come along!
