From Year 3 onwards the girls have the opportunity to compete in interschool competitions organised by the Independent Primary Schools Heads of Australia (IPSHA) or the Association of Heads of Independent Girls Schools (AHIGS – IGSSA) on Saturday mornings and at the respective Swimming, Cross Country, Athletics and Gymnastics Carnivals as well as the Tildesley Shield Tennis Tournament for Senior School girls. Wenona also provides opportunities for girls to compete in local community-based competitions for select sports which are held of an evening mid-week or on Saturdays. We also offer competitive and fitness based swimming squads throughout the year.
Wenona fosters the progression of students selected into representative teams along the school pathway from IPSHA and IGSSA, to NSWCIS and National All Schools level as well supporting those girls pursuing their sporting passion outside of school.
With a focus on creating a holistic education and supporting the benefits sport and physical activity play in this regard, Wenona provides opportunities for students looking for more general recreational activities without the desire for competition. Activities range from Skipping, Basic Skills, Gymnastics and Tennis in the Junior School to Water Sports, Fitness, Pilates and Fencing in the Senior School. Whether the girls are competing in regional, state or national competitions or simply having fun in a social team, they are encouraged to do their best while learning the benefits of teamwork and building their physical coordination.
