Building a Lifelong Desire to Learn

At Iona, we believe in an education that caters for the needs of each of our girls and encourages them to extend themselves at every level. Through the combination of 'teaching' and 'learning', our aim is that girls will leave our supportive community as resilient well-educated young women with high values and a lifelong curiosity to learn and be engaging, caring and active citizens of the world.

Through all our Learning Areas as well as our Gifted & Talented and Learning Enhancement Programs, our students are encouraged to extend themselves at every level of ability.


Encouraging Critical and Creative Thinkers

Today we live in a world of rapid change and scientific and technological advancements, so our education needs to cater for this change. At Iona, the subject and pathway choices that our young women in Years 7-12 are offered is broad and our curriculum encourages the pursuit of excellence and academic growth. Alongside this and guided by the Catholic spirituality of the Presentation Sisters, they build strong values and are encouraged and guided to translate these values into actions.

We believe in educating the whole person by meeting the spiritual, intellectual, psychological and social needs of each girl to play a part as our women of the future—in whatever capacity they wish.

In addition to the normal disciplines promoting numeracy, literacy and physical wellbeing, the College places a high emphasis on information technology, foreign languages, music and the arts.
