Performing Arts

To foster their development as Renaissance women, Wenona girls take part in a rich Performing Arts program that includes Drama, Music and extra-curricular Dance.

As part of their Music studies, Kindergarten to Year 2 students sing in the Woodstock Choir and perform at School events. From Year 3 students learn an instrument. Girls are encouraged to join one of our nearly two dozen musical groups, which include seven choirs; an orchestra; string, wind, brass and flute ensembles; a piano quintet; a concert band and a rock band. They can also take part in School musicals.

Extra-curricular private tuition is available in piano, strings, woodwind, brass, drums and percussion, voice, musicianship and theory. Girls can sit the Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) exams.

Drama is studied as part of the English syllabus through to Year 9, from which point it can be taken as an elective. Students are encouraged to see theatre productions, and in Years 10 and 11 receive a subscription to a mainstage Sydney theatre company. Extra-curricular Speech and Drama classes are offered and girls can sit Trinity College London exams.

Dance is an extra-curricular offering, with a comprehensive program for Kindergarten to Year 12 taught on campus. As for all Performing Arts activities, there are many performance and competition opportunities.
