Giving

The Wenona community is far-sighted one, committed to ensuring our School can offer the best in girls’ education now and into the future. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

There are numerous avenues for contributing, including our Capital Appeal, Annual Giving appeal, STEM Centre online catalogue and bequests. Donations can also be made when tuition fees are paid. Donors are welcomed and recognised as members of the Wenona Foundation, which capably oversees the School’s development programs and philanthropic contributions, governed by a Board of Directors made up of parents, past parents and alumnae.

Capital Appeal

The School’s Master Plan is designed to keep Wenona at the leading edge in a rapidly changing world. The first stage is the development of the Wenona STEM Centre and Sporting Facility, which began construction this year. This world-class, sustainable building incorporates state-of-the-art Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning areas, an Aquatic Centre with additional specialist sports functionality, a purpose-built food technology kitchen and university-style Senior learning areas. It anticipates our students’ needs for years to come.

Visit the Capital Appeal website to find out more or donate online to this significant project.

Bequests

Many Wenonians and their family members take the opportunity to provide a lasting legacy to the School by specifying a bequest in their wills, ensuring connections to Wenona live on for generations to come. To discuss Bequests please contact Mrs Sonia Brennan, Director of Foundation via email or telephone (02) 9409 4413.
