At WAS I have met a friendly and kind-hearted group of classmates who often give me suggestions in my study. I have made good friends with many of them. The teachers at WAS are very patient and responsible, and I have made much progress in my weaker subjects. In addition, teachers not only help you in class but also care about your life on the weekend. As far as I am concerned, this is important for international students. I feel proud to be a member of WAS’ big family.

Year 10 International Student, China

When I came to Australia, I was excited and frightened as everything was new to me; the language, the classes, and the environment. There is no doubt that my sister who came a year before me is a hero, she surely overcame her worst fears. All beginnings are rocky and tough, but WAS is different. I’m very, very thankful to the School for giving me an opportunity to discover my potential. At the School, students and teachers are very helpful. In boarding, the boarders and staff welcomed me and treated me as family.

Year 11 International student, Hong Kong

Booth House has made me feel like the boarding house is my second home and the residents are my second family. It is a good experience to have as we all have fun and mix together and support each other with any problems.

Year 10 Boarding Student, Claire Lloyd

Booth House has provided leadership opportunities, exposure to different cultures through our holiday hosting of an overseas student, and promoted independence for our daughters. The weekly boarding option suited our family as it enabled the girls to come home on the weekends and help out on the cattle property. Whitsunday Anglican School has provided our daughters with an excellent education, enabling them to follow their chosen career paths after school.
