...it's part of the Wildy DNA that we are taught to be strong and independent, to be interested and concerned about each other and the world. And most incredibly, this is all done by example. It surrounds us. We don’t just raise money for educational and medical resources in Nepal, but we follow up by trekking over, offering hands on help – and not just our current students but our old scholars, parents and teachers are all committed to being involved.
Georgie Clarnette, Past President of the SRC
Wilderness School is grounded in values of a non-denominational Christian family tradition. At Wilderness we are committed to being true to the vision of the founders, the Misses Brown, and are guided by their motto 'Semper Verus', "Always True". They founded this school on their belief in the need for unlimited kindness in relationships, joy in learning and academic adventure, a spirit of humility and the balance between seeking individual excellence and success and generous service to the community. These values still guide every part of Wilderness School's culture, relationships, teaching and learning programs and practices.
We are dedicated to providing a firm foundation and inspiration for a challenging, demanding and fulfilling life in which each individual can discover and develop her gifts, find inner balance, make true friends and be enabled to contribute to and act for the common good.
