As a result of the recent school closures because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Wenona's closely-knit boarding community returned home to their parents and guardians, where they continued to study remotely via Wenona's Athenaeum Learning Pathway.
We asked them how the school had supported them during these unusual times.
Milla Serafin in year 10 joined Wenona as a boarder this year.
While the boarding house has been closed, Milla has spent her time in the fresh air and open space on her family's farm in Whitton, NSW.
She's also looking forward to being back in the classroom at Wenona and returning to boarding life. Her parents, Mark and Melinda, will miss her, but know she will be embraced by the boarding community.
"Milla can't wait to see all the girls," Melinda said.
Jada Taylor is in year 11 at Wenona. She has just returned to the boarding house from her hometown of Tamworth. A rising rugby star, Jada used her time in lockdown to improve her fitness and work on her strength training with her father and brother, using the variety of online programs set up by the Wenona sport department and sport coaches.
"I found it tricky to sustain my studies with less face-to-face teaching," Jada said.
"I'm really looking forward to the help and support of the boarding prep supervisors again."
