Physical activity is an important part of girls’ development. At Wenona, sport is fun, challenging, providing the opportunity for teamwork, and for girls to excel in groups and individually. Girls can take part in a range of physical activities, fostering confidence and a sense of adventure.
Sports on offer include Athletics, Basketball, Cricket, Hockey (both Indoor and Minkey), Netball, Snowsports, Swimming, Tennis and Touch and, for senior students, Fencing, Sailing, Water Polo, Water Sports and more. These varied sports encourage girls to embrace healthy activity as part of a well-rounded life.
Wenona participates in interschool competitions via the Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA) and the Association of Heads of Independent Girls Schools (AHIGS). Our students can compete at local, state, national and international levels. From Years 4 to 6 the girls compete in the IPSHA competition and play sport on Saturday mornings. Senior girls compete in team and individual sports as part of the Independent Girls Schools Sports Association (IGSSA). Optional, age-appropriate extra-curricular sport lessons are also available in Swimming, Gymnastics, Tennis, Diving, Fencing, Pilates and more.
