West Moreton Anglican College (WestMAC) is a dynamic Prep to Year 12 co-educational Independent school that promotes a balanced schooling experience. Our innovative teachers challenge students to actively engage in their own learning; become critical, creative and entrepreneurial thinkers; and to develop emotionally, socially and spiritually. We strive to instill a love of learning in our students, so they can explore their full potential.
Our academic program is carefully sequenced, ensuring that each student is engaged in learning through developmentally appropriate content, assessment, and grading. The College promotes learning as a meaningful experience through decision making, problem solving, invention, experimental inquiry, investigation, and system analysis. These higher-order thinking skills are developed in students at all year levels.
WestMAC offers broad academic and vocational education and training (VET) programs which allow students to select pathways that motivate and inspire them to achieve their best. Graduates seeking post-school tertiary pathways routinely attain first or second preference offers from universities.
The College’s unique location offers many advantages. WestMAC is set on a naturally beautiful 38 hectare semi-rural campus less than 10 minutes from Ipswich’s CBD. This provides students with a peaceful and safe learning environment, as well as convenient access to the amenities of this increasingly dynamic, growing regional centre. Additionally, dedicated bus services make the College easily accessible to Brisbane’s western suburbs; enrolment trends indicate that WestMAC is increasingly attractive to families in this corridor. The College campus includes three sub-schools: Junior (Prep to Year 6); Middle (Years 7 to 9); and Senior (Years 10 to 12). A community C&K Kindergarten is also located on campus.
Students have access to and are encouraged to partake in, an extensive range of enriching learning activities. Students can participate in sport, music, dance, outdoor education and a range of clubs and international study tours. These opportunities foster personal development, cultivate leadership skills, enhance team-building and develop effective communication.
The College’s strengths-based wellbeing program, SpiritED, reflects our understanding that life-long learning involves mind, body, and spirit. We focus on developing the aptitudes and the attitudes that young people need to flourish in the 21st century’s rapidly changing world.
At the heart of the College community is faith and service – both based on Anglican beliefs. Students are encouraged to value themselves and to be proud of their own and each other's achievements.
WestMAC is proud to graduate young people more than capable of being tomorrow’s leaders.
