At Wilderness, we are committed to offering opportunities to all students in order to prepare them for their education, career pathways and future life.

Opportunities for life enable each girl to:

  • Find her own strengths and areas for development in her learning to become independent and accept responsibility, to set goals and achieve them and to be resilient in the face of adversity
  • Make informed decisions about future pathways and directions at school, in the workplace and the community
  • Participate in community activities to develop a keen sense of social justice and to make generous contributions to the well being of the society in which they live
  • Enhance the capacity of each girl to understand how she can help to shape a better future for the global comunity.

School Camps

As part of a balanced education, the program encourages girls to explore and expand their horizons. It is our belief that this enables girls to learn valuable skills, gain independence and work effectively in teams.

Clubs & Committees

A range of committees is responsible for the organisation of various activities in the school. This provides girls with opportunities for leadership and encourages participation and inclusivity.

Exchange Program

A student exchange program complements a student's formal education in important and exciting ways. Experiences at school, both in students' academic and co-curricular lives, provide the opportunities that will make them global citizens.

Overseas Opportunities

A vital aspect of nurturing the minds and imaginations of Wilderness students is providing them with opportunities to experience the world around them. Girls are invited to participate in a number of overseas tours.

Young Entrepreneurs

Wilderness students studying Business and Enterprise in Year 10 develop entrepreneurial skills by participating in $20 Boss, an in-school challenge run by teachers, which provides students $20 of start-up to create their own business.

Music

All students study Music from Reception until Year 8. It then becomes an elective subject. There are choirs at each year level in the Junior School.

Performing Arts

Whole School Program - Drama is part of the curriculum from Year 5 to Year 12 and is a compulsory subject from Year 5 to Year 8. We have a national and state-wide reputation for Drama.

Sport

Sports and physical education play an important part in the Wilderness curriculum. As well as health and fitness benefits, physical activity helps to develop self-esteem, teamwork and concentration.

Visual Arts

All students study Art from Reception until Year 8, after which it becomes an elective subject.
