Old Scholars

Welcome to the Whitsunday Anglican School Old Scholars

Old Scholars maintains a connection with past students and aims to update them on the activities and progress of Whitsunday Anglican School. The school welcomes Old Scholars to visit, attend special school events and be involved in school life.

All past students are members of Old Scholars. We now have over 4000 members.

As an Old Scholar, you are connected to a network of past students who have expanded their horizons to pursue opportunities locally and globally.

Do we have your up-to-date contact details?

Make sure you connect with us so we can invite you to reunions and special school events.

Old Scholars are actively engaged in the school community. Some return as teachers, staff and board members, or contribute to school events. Some reconnect through their children – there are many second generation students at Whitsunday.

The School and Old Scholars value this multi-generational relationship.
