Student Achievers - Anna Wojnar

Anna Wojnar


I am 26 years old. I live with my parents and brother in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.

Because I have a severe disability called Morquio, to be able to get the most out of learning it was necessary to do my education through correspondence.


I started at Open Access College in 2012 and was slowly working towards my SACE.

OAC was great, as it was tailored to my needs and my teachers were great in being able to give me extra support outside of lesson time.

This flexibility allowed me to also concentrate on my health needs, like; being able to see all my specialists, continue my exercises and any rest that my body required.

Because of all the health complications, I surprised myself that I was able to complete my SACE and also receive a merit!

I couldn’t have achieved this goal and beyond without the support and encouragement that the staff at OAC provided.


As of this moment I am proud of my accomplishments, but after working so hard for many years I am taking a break from studying. I am the human resources assistant at a busy bakery so I am far from bored.

Thank you to Open Access College. With my SACE behind me, it proves that even though I have a severe disability… with a bit of hard work, I can still achieve things in life.
