Scholarships

The PFA provide scholarships to benefit the students within the College community. The Scholarship program recognises and encourages students who strive for excellence in a wide range of disciplines, and believes that it is important that students develop:

  • Skills of creativity;
  • A spirit of enquiry;
  • Self-discipline;
  • Critical awareness;
  • A sense of community;
  • Skills in leadership; and
  • A desire for academic excellence.

We endeavour to support students by providing a number of Scholarships each year for the following categories:

  • Personal Endeavour
  • Co-curricular
  • Academic Excellence
  • Community Spirit

The Scholarships are for $400 each to assist with the payment of school fees or the purchase of school books and uniform.

Students in Years 7 – 11 may apply for a scholarship for the following year.

Application forms are available to students late Term 3.
