Academic Scholarships –
The Year 7 Academic Scholarship is by application to the Principal on a scholarship application form and is awarded for high academic ability. Students must be nominated by a teacher and need to complete an academic test conducted at the school as part of the application process. An academic record needs to be provided and students require a reference from the class teacher. An out-of-school reference can be provided relating to community involvement, but this is optional. The scholarship will be awarded following a panel assessment of each student’s application.
Application forms can be found here: TBA
