At Wilderness Junior School, we believe that optimal learning for young girls occurs in an environment which is stimulating, supportive and challenging, where girls are resilient and collaborate well with others. Our curriculum, including implementation of the emerging Australian Curriculum, prepares our girls to be productive citizens in a changing society through active inquiry, authentic problem solving and critical and creative thinking.

The core curriculum is enriched by specialist teachers in Art, Drama, French, Information and Communication Technology, Inquiry Based Learning, Library, Technology, Music and Physical Education. Our wide range of curricular opportunities enables girls to reach their potential academically, emotionally, socially, physically and spiritually.

The Junior School, by Lucy Percival

We learn in style,
Mirrored glass and slanting steel,
Reflected Patterns, it’s a colour wheel,
Modern learning spaces, infinitely adaptable,
A sleek cascade of amazing and practical,
Funky furniture, shiny screens, comfy cushions -
A students dream,
We stay curious,
Reaching new concepts and discovery,
Learning presenting, we test our memory,
We have an open mind and a glint in our eyes,
Knowing we can reach for the skies,
We have began the most exciting journey,
Ready for a shower of possibilities, and we are worthy,
We treasure our friendships,
Together we have travelled through dreams and wonder facing our fears and controlling the thunder,
A colourful sunset of joyful peers,
Uniting as one to learn, conquer and pioneer,
Here we are happy to sit together,
As our dreams float as light as a feather,
We journey to our next stage,
Armed with knowledge and wonderful memories,
Abundant learning strategies and remedies,
The New Year will bring opportunities and changes,
But with our knowledge, we turn the pages,
We spring forward into the exciting and new,
We will strive to be, always true.
