WAS Together

Now, more than ever, our community is vital.

WAS Together is an initiative from the Whitsunday Anglican School Foundation to support our family businesses during this uncertain time.

The WAS community has proven to be generous, inclusive, and supportive, from family businesses sponsoring school events to the spirit of parent volunteers, we have shown that when help is needed we know how to contribute.

With the current health crisis, the economic challenge continues. One practical thing we can all do is support WAS families and their businesses.

This resource is intended to support our local businesses in the WAS community.

Together, we can make a difference!

I create beautiful, exceptionally high-quality, bespoke Heirloom Memoir books and products for private family collections. My mission is to help families document and record the stories and memories of their loved ones, to hand down through their future generations. COVID has had a significant impact on my business as I can no longer offer face-to-face interviews and in-person draft consultations. The good news is, I am now conducting all interviews via Zoom, and all written drafts are available online via a secure service. This means more family members can get involved in the creation of the book.

I am a passionate, professional musician and educator with over 25 years of experience in the music industry. I tutor in Percussion and Piano studies at Whitsunday Anglican, in addition to offering expert, tailored tuition from my fully equipped home studio in Slade Point. I tour nationally and internationally as time permits, performing as a freelance musician with Australia's top Symphony Orchestra's and various other musical groups. To this end, I have recently toured India, New Zealand, and Singapore. Covid 19 has decimated the live Performing Arts industry in 2020 and for the foreseeable future, with all live performances canceled in most places around the world. My gigs included! In addition to this, many performers are also educators and the delivery of music lessons has also been largely affected by the current pandemic.

Discount to families with more than one child (or adult) learning at the same time.
