NAPLAN Success For WAS

Whitsunday Anglican School (WAS) has been ranked as Queensland’s top performing regional school and one of the best schools in the State based on 2022 NAPLAN results.

Proudly representing the regions, WAS was the only regional school in Queensland to make the State’s Top 10 for Secondary.

Senior students ranked an incredible 4th in Queensland, with all other schools in the Top 10 based in Brisbane.

Primary results were also high, with Junior students from WAS the only ones north of the Sunshine Coast to make the Top 50.

WAS Principal Andrew Wheaton said congratulations must go to teachers, students and the wider school community.

“These remarkable results are testament to our dedicated and gifted teachers, and strong academic and pastoral leadership over many years,” he said.

“They are also a reflection of our highly supportive wider parent community!

“It is truly inspiring to be a part of a team that achieves such incredible outcomes for our students.

“While NAPLAN is just one component of the learning journey, at Whitsunday Anglican School, we challenge and support our students to be the best they can be, in a supportive environment that allows them to thrive.”
