Welcome to Whitsunday Anglican School!

Mr Andrew Wheaton is the sixth Principal of Whitsunday Anglican School, a leading co-educational K-12 School situated in the beautiful tropical surrounds of Mackay and the Whitsundays.

As educators, it is a rewarding feeling to know that we are part of the start of so many new schooling journeys and the continuation of many more.

At Whitsunday Anglican School, we pride ourselves on providing opportunities in learning and in life. Our students build confidence, character and skills that go beyond school, in a safe and nurturing environment that allows them to thrive.

We challenge and support our students to be the very best they can be – in the classroom and beyond.

From Kindergarten to Year 12, we follow a philosophy of personalised learning and equip our students with the capabilities and values they need to create bright futures.

Our students are encouraged to express their creativity, and to be innovative, as they seek to solve the world’s greatest challenges. We encourage a globally minded outlook and we develop our students’ resilience and strength of character through co-curricular pursuits, a love of the Arts and leading sporting and pastoral care programs. We also value our students serving others in the community, humbly putting others before self.

Throughout my career, I have been privileged to have worked in a diverse range of independent day and boarding schools in Australia and the United Kingdom, in city, rural and regional communities.

I am immensely proud to lead this great school – alongside our talented teachers and staff, and in collaboration with our remarkable students and school community –  into a new stage of development, one that will contribute to and build on our outstanding reputation.

At Whitsunday Anglican School we value strong partnerships with our families, so that our students may realise their full potential.

While the website provides a comprehensive snapshot of Whitsunday Anglican School I encourage you to come and visit us by booking a personal tour today – contact our Registrar Mrs Simone McFarlane at registrar@was.qld.edu.au or apply online to reserve a place in the relevant year level or on our waiting list.

I look forward to welcoming your family to our wonderful School.
