Community and Connection
Showcasing Wenona’s warmth and camaraderie.
It has been a week bustling with activities and events to bring together different elements of the diverse Wenona community.
On Thursday morning, the Alumnae Association held its annual Women of Spirit Breakfast at The Greens in St Leonards Park. Over delicious fare, guests heard from keynote speaker Ms Bonnie MacTavish, a successful entrepreneur, marketer and brand strategist. Ms MacTavish founded the digital company Nightjar, which helps organisations establish connected digital experiences for their customers and has built an exceptional reputation in a short time, attracting clients such as Destination NSW, Optus, and THE ICONIC.
Ms MacTavish shared her personal and inspiring story about the challenges of running a business and the importance of staying strong in the face of obstacles. Her message was clear: do not fear the unknown, as life is unpredictable and career twists and turns can prove exciting.
Wenona’s Women of Spirit Breakfast embodies the essence of the Wenona community, with proceeds going towards the Wenona Alumnae's Barbara Jackson Scholarship. We extend our gratitude to everyone who supported this event and contributed to its success.
The Wenona Parents’ Association (WPA) this morning organised a welcome morning for our Asian parents, to help them connect, share their experiences, and overcome language barriers as they and their daughters continue to adjust to Wenona life.
Many Wenona staff members were in attendance, and the atmosphere was filled with laughter and lively conversation as new connections and friendships were formed.
