At Mackay’s Whitsunday Anglican School, we offer exceptional educational and life experiences for your child, close to home.
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.
As well as receiving a leading academic education, our boarders build confidence, character, independence and skills that go beyond school in a safe and nurturing environment that allows them to thrive.
Boarders are part of a well-connected wider community that includes, the school, friends and their family.
Providing leading facilities in the Mackay region, we are proud to be the only school to support boarders locally.
Our boarders actively participate in both boarding and home life. We offer a chartered bus home for weekends to servicing surrounding areas including Moranbah, Clermont, Eton and Nebo. We also offer full time boarding for students who require 7 day boarding.
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.
We are thrilled to offer the opportunity to board to families in regional Queensland, and beyond. It’s a world class education a drive away.
