Wahroonga Adventist School is a thriving, faith-based learning community with students from Prep to Year 12, offering a well-rounded education for boys and girls. Established in 1905, it is part of a worldwide network of Adventist Schools, colleges and universities.
With a motto of Nurture for Today, Learning for Tomorrow, Character for Eternity, the focus is on children’s mental, physical, social and spiritual needs, ensuring they are provided with learning that prepares them for life. We believe in an education that goes beyond the classroom, where partnership between home and school is imperative in growing confident and compassionate young people who will ultimately make a difference in their world.
Operating on a new campus, the school features state of the art facilities that stimulate learning, foster collaboration and spark the curiosity required to develop a love of learning supported by caring, passionate teachers. “Students are the heart and soul of our school community, and giving them a nurturing, contemporary education that best equips them with the skills and dispositions for the future is core to what we do,” says School Principal, Mrs Julia Heise.
We offer smaller class sizes where students are provided with a differentiated curriculum involving learning enrichment and extension to cater for student interest. Year 11 and 12 students are also provided with opportunities to study subjects of interest on site and through Distance Education/TVET.
Passionate about the range of art, drama and music programs, students in Years 3 to 6 participate in weekly small group music tuition. A lively co-curricular program is offered including band, orchestra and choir, interest-based clubs such as chess, and many leadership and community service opportunities.
The wellbeing and outdoor education programs include camps for Years 5 to 10 students, participation in the Invictus and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award programs, along with an elective overseas service trip for Year 11.
A diverse wide range of sports are offered for both recreation and competition, with opportunities to access pathways to higher levels of representative sport.
