Bursaries

​Each year, a variety of community organisations and families donate bursaries to our school to present to winning applicants at end of year school ceremonies. The bursaries are sent directly to the schools the winners intend to attend the following year, to help contribute to the cost of their education.

There are four types of bursaries, students may apply for more than one type of bursary, but be awarded no more than one.
