Whitsunday Anglican School is a co-educational day and boarding school. Booth House provides for the comfortable living of up to 78 boarders from Years 5 to 12.
In keeping with the trends of modern boarding around the nation, we provide a warm, supportive and family-like atmosphere. Every student has their own desk, storage cupboard and wall space for posters, family photos and term planners. All sleeping areas have fans and are air-conditioned. Most of the beds are king singles. Common rooms, kitchenettes, television areas and a small library are all provided to enhance the quality of boarder life.
While living areas are shared, sleeping areas, toilets and showers are separate. Boarders are made very aware of the shared and segregated areas of the boarding house. Sleeping areas of Booth House are in three defined buildings; Booth House, the PODs and Dalrymple Wing.
Booth House accommodates Year 5 to Year 9 students in single, double and four-bed rooms. Toilets, showers, laundries, kitchenettes and common rooms provide all the living space and resources required for boarders. These areas are also enhanced by study spaces and relaxation areas are designed to replicate the comfort of home.
A POD typically accommodates Year 9 to Year 11 students, and emphasises the comfort and privacy required as the boarders get older. Each POD is characterised by six single bedrooms, showers and toilet areas coming off a central hallway. There are 24 individual rooms in this four-POD complex.
Dalrymple Wing is the latest extension to the Booth House boarding community. There are seven single rooms around four central hallways, complete with showers and toilets. Dalrymple Wing is a two-level building, the first of its kind at Whitsunday Anglican School. Each floor is dedicated to either senior girls or boys, maintaining the segregated sleeping areas. There is a spacious and well-ventilated common room/kitchenette and laundry also provided on the ground floor.
