HATS which is free of charge has been a unique part of the School’s offerings for over a decade. Students, formally from Year 5 onwards, are encouraged to be involved in this optional internal tuition program.
The teaching staff of Whitsunday Anglican School drive this program by committing to providing a minimum of one hour of their time per week, after school, every Tuesday to Thursday, to further enhance the depth of knowledge of the student’s curriculum areas.
HATS is provided for:
- Years 5-6 students in the rooms T8-9;
- Years 7-9 students in the rooms G2-3; and,
- Years 10-12 students in the Tindall rooms near the Senior School Administration building.
Due to supervision requirements, students will not be able to access the Mienert Centre until 4.15 pm. Teachers will be allocated to each afternoon and will provide homework and tutorial assistance to support each student’s learning. Heads of Faculty may run a one-off tutorial on a specific subject with access to resources, depending on each cohort’s learning requirements. This opportunity will be communicated through the Daily Correspondence.
Please note, that all students remaining on campus after 3:30pm will be directed to the appropriate HATS venue for adequate supervision.
