Principal’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Fraser Coast Anglican College.  We are especially proud of our students and are very proud of the education we offer, and that we have been recognised as Queensland’s number one regional school.  Fraser Coast Anglican College is a co-educational school with over 800 students from Kindergarten to Year 12.  We enjoy a beautiful, natural environment set in the rapidly growing coastal city of Hervey Bay.

Our mission is to provide a high quality learning environment within a Christian community of the Anglican tradition which enriches the body, mind and spirit of each student. 

It is for this reason that a major emphasis is placed on the teaching and learning environment which exists both within and outside the classroom environment.

Our caring pastoral care system is based on an individual knowledge of every child within each of the sub schools:  Kindergarten (3-4 year olds), Junior School (Prep – Year 6), and Middle/Senior (Years 7 – 12).  We have a broad range of co-curricular activities in sport and the arts, as well as an extensive outdoor education program of camps, leadership opportunities, service programs and a variety of clubs and activities that provide challenge, extension and stimulation for our students.  We encourage and expect our students to participate actively in the life of the College and wider community.

Our staff are committed to providing the best opportunity for our children to reach their potential.  Research states that it is the quality of teaching that has the greatest impact on student achievement.  Throughout the College the passion of our teachers is reflected in the quality of learning going on.  Students are encouraged to take educational risks, challenge themselves and aim to succeed through being supported by experienced teachers, encouraging parents and each other.

The Fraser Coast Anglican College community is a participative community of motivated people, which readily accepts newcomers.  It’s a very inclusive and collaborative culture where individuality is welcomed, respected and celebrated.

Fraser Coast Anglican College is a community of learners who seek to develop well-rounded, confident young adults who are prepared for life beyond the school gates.  Our graduates have recorded success in a full range of careers both within Australia and internationally.

I invite you to come and visit Fraser Coast Anglican College and see our beautiful campus, and experience for yourself the dynamic learning community.
