Welcome to Whitsunday Anglican School

Established in 1988, Whitsunday Anglican School has an excellent record of success across a range of academic and cultural fronts.

Whitsunday Anglican School students consistently produce OP results which are among the best in the State and NAPLAN results which compare favourably across the nation.

Our students have also been consistently successful in events like the State Ministerís award for visual art, public speaking events, the Lions Youth of the Year and in think-tank events like the Model United Nations Youth Forum.

Whitsunday Anglican School's academic focus, is supported by strong pastoral care which seeks to assist students in optimising their potential for success in life by building in them the habits of self-belief, persistence and resilience.

Excellent Boarding Facilities

Whitsunday Anglican School has now completed its extension to the boarding facility, the Dalrymple Wing. This expansion means we now offer full time boarding as well as continue with weekly boarding students from Bowen, Proserpine, Hamilton Island, Moranbah, Clermont, Dysart and Cannonvale.

A school bus had been purchased to assist with transporting students to excursions and activities at weekends and during the week.

Latest Technology

During the last few years, personal computers have been introduced to students at Whitsunday Anglican School.

By 2012, all students had either a notebook (Years 4,5, and 6) or a tablet (Years 7,8,9,10,11 and 12).

With our wireless campus, students can move from class to class and stay connected.

Year 7 Transition to Senior School

With Queensland due to make Year 7 part of senior school in 2015, Whitsunday Anglican School has increased Year 7 from two classes to three, thus allowing more students the opportunity of experiencing our Middle School curriculum and environment.

Year 7 will remain part of our Middle School in 2015 in Whitsunday Anglican School, but will ensure the transition to the senior school curriculum is a smooth one.

Kindergarten

Whitsunday Anglican School has a Kindergarten class and a new facility has been constructed to offer a state-of-the-art building for our early learners.
