HATS OVERVIEW

Whitsunday Anglican School offers a Homework Assistance (Junior School) and Tutorial Scheme (Senior School) free of charge. The Homework and Tutorial Scheme 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. HATS has been a unique part of the School’s offerings for over a decade.

The teaching staff of Whitsunday Anglican School drive this program by committing to 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.
