Connect, succeed, thrive

At Iona, learning and wellbeing are inextricably linked. We prize the qualities of grit and determination, curiosity and resilience.

We know our girls learn best when their wellbeing is optimised and they develop a strong sense of wellbeing when they experience success in their learning, are confident in their identity and are optimistic about their future.

Our girls understand that individual wellbeing is a skill that can be developed. Our wellbeing curriculum teaches lifelong personal competencies to develop our girls’ resilience, an understanding of their own strengths and the importance of recognising strengths in others.

We are committed to

  • Unlocking individual strengths and virtues.

  • Fostering wellbeing.​​​​​​​

  • Celebrating the uniqueness of each individual.
  • Building life-long mindfulness, resilience and commitment to service.
  • Developing emotional maturity and spiritual richness within the
    ​​​​​​​Presbyterian tradition.
  • Engendering a growth mindset whereby our girls thrive on challenge and see failure not as a defeat but as a springboard for growth and for stretching their existing abilities.
