Philanthropic Scholarship

From time to time, with the generous donations from members of the Christ Church community, the School has the capacity to award scholarships to boys entering Year 7 who, for financial reasons, would not otherwise be able to attend the School. These scholarships are open to Australian students who meet the required criteria and, while subject to annual review, are tenable for the duration of a boy’s education at Christ Church. Applicants are considered on their ability to benefit from a Christ Church education and must clearly demonstrate financial hardship.

This year, the Old Boys’ Association Scholarship Trust are pleased to offer The Don Macleod Memorial Scholarship – available to a boy commencing Year 7 in 2019 to the value of 50% tuition from Year 7 to Year 12.
