Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Whitsunday Christian College. The Whitsundays is the Heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Whitsunday Christian College is the Christian Heart of Education.

Few decisions in life are as important as selecting the right school for your children. Choosing a school that is warm, caring, has high standards of conduct, excellent academics and develops character, is one of the most important decisions families can make for their children.  That decision is crucial as up to 13 years will be spent with teachers who will spend over 30 hours a week with your child teaching, guiding and modelling Christian values and character. Not only will your child be part of our school, but your family will be part of our school community. At Whitsunday Christian College we aim to partner with parents in the education of your child encouraging expectations between home and school that are consistent. 

Situated in the heart of the Whitsundays, we are only a 5-15 minute bus service from Jubilee Pocket, Cannonvale and surrounding areas. We are one campus, supporting a family community and the only High School in the town of Airlie Beach.

As you look through this website and speak with us, I trust you will discover the difference at Whitsunday Christian College, a P – 12 school that provides quality learning experiences within a safe and caring Christian environment. We are big enough to provide great opportunities, yet small enough to provide personal care and attention.

At Whitsunday Christian College, we believe God has a special plan and purpose for every child and that each one can achieve success. We aim to offer students a wide range of learning experiences that allow them to discover and develop their unique gifts and talents and, therefore, reach their fullest potential. We strive to see every student be all they can be.

Whitsunday Christian College has embraced digital technology in our 1:1 laptop program for students in Years 5-12, built from the earlier phases of tablets in class and computer access in Years 3-4 and tablets and computers for Prep to Year 2. This is supported by the upgrade to high speed 5.0GHz 802.11ac wireless network. We prepare children with 21st century teaching and learning whilst building upon values and character.

I have taught in Australia in 3 states and 1 territory, in Kenya, and in Indonesia with different curricula and different situations since 1990. From my experience, I have concluded that a good school does its job in educating children to meet academic standards, and a great school provides a life long positive impact preparing children not just in academics, but in all areas including sport, music, the arts, social development, emotional development, character formation and spiritually.

At Whitsunday Christian College, we aim to be a learning community where every student can flourish. We seek to educate the whole person.  That is, we focus on the head, the hands and the heart.  In this way, we encourage students to have strong minds, develop practical skills and cultivate wholesome values.

If you wish to know more about Whitsunday Christian College, please contact us by email , by phone on 07 4948 5100 or visit us in the beautiful Whitsundays.

I look forward to meeting you and partnering with you in the education of your children.
