Wilderness extends far beyond the gates of our campus. One of the great strengths of Wilderness is the tangible sense of community at every level of the school that enable us to instill a sense of belonging, acceptance and united purpose.
The Wilderness community is a dynamic blend of current students and their parents, past parents, past and current staff and many past students who have passed through the school since 1884. These groups exist to support the prosperity of Wilderness.
In recent times there has been increasing research into the role that a collaborative school-community relationship plays in building individual and whole school health and wellbeing. It is clear that effective parent involvement in schools is a critical factor in students' success and in transforming schools into powerful communities.
This interaction outside the classroom between staff, past and present students and their families creates a positive family atmosphere and is the essence of Wilderness School's vitality, spirit and growth.
