Testimonials

"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."

Boarding Parents, Mark & Pauline Lloyd

“Whitsunday Anglican School has really helped me to balance my academic studies with my sport by assisting me to maintain a flexible timetable and providing extra assistance on days when I have sporting commitments. I really appreciate their support and assistance as I strive to reach my full potential, both academically and on the AFL field.

The School is also great for the opportunities it offers its students. I was lucky enough to be named one of the baton bearers for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay this year. This would not have been possible without Whitsunday Anglican School and I cannot thank them enough for putting me forward for this once in a lifetime opportunity.”

Year 10 Day Student, Lulu Piperone

"At Whitsunday Anglican School 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."

"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

"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."
