National ride to school day Friday 13th March

National Ride to School Day

The Wilderness Junior School will be celebrating Active Travel Day on Friday 13 March (week 7). Actively travelling to and from school is a great way that students of all ages can meet their recommended daily dose of 60 minutes of physical activity.We are encouraging students and their families to leave the car at home on this day and get a taste of the benefits, ease and fun involved in choosing to walk and wheel to school. For those families that drive to school we suggest parking a distance away and walking part of the way if possible.

Members of the Active for Life Committee will be greeting and congratulating girls at the LJS and JS gates from 8:00am-8:30am.

Girls taking part in the day can wear their PE uniform. There will also be games in the LJS and in the gym at lunch time.

We look forward to seeing all girls being involved in this fit and fun morning.

“Follow your passion no matter what – dare to be different”

This is the message being given today at the National Young Leaders Day by Rachael Leahcar.

Rachael Leahcar talks about her journey to pursue her music career.


We have been inspired by listening to young Adelaide woman, Andrea Boyd, who works in mission control for the International Space Station followed by some exciting entertainment by Pure Funk Dance.

Amendment to our last post

Would you please let us know through our blog, not by contacting Julie Ovary, if you are attending our information evening on Student Well Being?

Please click on the initial post about the evening, “Do you know the strategies we use…..” and leave a comment. Thanks to Anna Coutsoumbes for beginning the process.

Thank you and well done to all families who have subscribed and left comments on our blog.

Do you know the strategies we use to enable your daughter to flourish at Wilderness school?

Next Tuesday evening, Trina Cummins our Head of Student Well Being, is giving a presentation to parents about the wonderful strategies and opportunities we offer at Wilderness to ensure that your daughters’ well being is the best it can be.

We would love as many parents as possible to attend this presentation. Please would you let Julie Ovary know if you are attending as soon as possible so that we can ensure we have a large enough venue to accommodate all parents.

We look forward to seeing you all there.

Class and Student Blogging

Blogging is very new to many of us, but for some it is a familiar way to communicate and learn as part of an online community.


At present we are participating in a ‘blog challenge’ so that we can improve our blogging skills and support the girls to become part of our online bogging community.


Using Pages

As part of this skill development we have created a couple of pages which you will see at the top left side of our home page. One is called Term Overviews. Have a look at what the girls will be doing for the rest of the term.

Here you will also find a page outlining Blog Guidelines which will soon be followed by a page outlining guidelines for making comments.

Stay tuned to see our progress with the blog challenge!

Welcome to Year 6 2015


We have had a great start to the term and we are pleased to see all of the girls settling in and becoming more organised and accustomed to the routines of Year 6.

It was wonderful to see so many of you at our information evening last week, including lots of new parents.
