Personalised academic and wellness support

Wingu Academy is home to highly qualified teachers and subject experts in content development. We use research-based, innovative teaching strategies to engage students in personalised online learning.

The Wingu Wellbeing Unit – promoting physical and mental health

The Wingu Wellness Hub is the centre where Wingu fosters awareness and skills development for emotional intelligence and physical health. The aim is to provide a safe space for all Wingulians and to support the learners, parents and staff.

We do this by providing them with services that increase their overall well-being to ensure that no Wingulian gets left behind.

Furthermore, the hub is committed to building essential 4th and 5th industrial revolution skills associated with wellness, emotional intelligence, resilience, inclusivity, and purpose.

Wingulians believe we should leave the world a better place than we found it. We use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to guide the student leadership initiatives.

Our student leadership runs an official foundation – The Wingu Cares Foundation. This has successfully supported numerous initiatives, including those for the Endangered Wildlife Trust and Refugees.
