Applications are open for Whitsunday Anglican School Academic and General Excellence (Music or Sport) Scholarships.

The scholarships are awarded to students from Years 5 to 11, and apply for the following year in most cases.

All academic scholarship applicants are to sit a scholarship test through Academic Assessment Services.

Academic: Applicants are students who have consistently achieved a very high level of academic success.

General Excellence: Applicants are students who encompass the Core Values of Whitsunday Anglican School and are well-rounded in sport, academics and cultural endeavours. They are able to display evidence of their achievements in their chosen areas.

General Excellence – Music: Music Scholarships are awarded to students, who demonstrate outstanding musical achievement or potential on any instrument or voice – Strings, Choral, Brass, Woodwind, Percussion, Keyboard and Contemporary Music.

Applicants are able to display evidence of their achievements in music through the submission of a portfolio.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to undertake an audition and interview before a panel headed by the Head of Music. Auditions will involve the performance of two contrasting works, and a brief aural examination. In addition, all applicants are required to prepare and sing a simple song of their choosing. Short-listed applicants from the audition process will then be invited to undertake an interview with the Principal.

General Excellence – Sport: Applicants are students who have demonstrated exceptional ability in their chosen sport, and can display evidence of this success.

Scholarships continue until the end of the student’s schooling at Whitsunday Anglican School.
