Pastoral Care and Spiritual Life


Wahroonga Prep is a Uniting Church school and we welcome students and families of all faiths.

We support the spiritual growth and journey of each child. Our students attend chapel each week at St John’s Church, located directly adjacent to our campus, and attend weekly scripture classes.


While developing excellent academic skills is our focus, we also aim to help each child develop as a confident, resilient young person.

All of our staff are trained in the principles of Positive Psychology. While mainstream psychology often focuses on people who already suffer from mental health issues, Positive Psychology (in schools often called 'Positive Education') aims to proactively increase resilience and wellbeing.

Using the ‘You Can Do It!’ framework, our students explore and learn five key skills: getting along, organisation, persistence, confidence and resilience.
