School-wide scholarships to be offered at Kristin

SND13-wk1-Kristin Scholarships 300x225From Term 1 2016, Kristin will be offering a range of new scholarship positions to students from Years 5 to 11.

This marks one of the most significant changes in the school’s approach to accessible education since the establishment of the Kristin Foundation Scholarship Programme in 2011.

While the school currently supports a small number of scholarship students in the Middle and Senior Schools, the introduction of almost 30 new awards will create opportunities for younger students, academic high-achievers, and those who demonstrate excellence across a wide range of activities, to benefit from a Kristin education.

Executive principal Tim Oughton believes whole-heartedly in the quality education offered at Kristin and says the introduction of this comprehensive scholarship programme is a long-term commitment to the local community.

“Our students learn not only to be great achievers, but to be compassionate and creative people. This is something all young people should have the chance to learn and, as leading educators, it is our responsibility to ensure we make these opportunities available to those who would otherwise not have access to independent education.”

The new scholarship programme includes a range of grants for new students entering into Years 5, 7, 9 and 11 at Kristin. These awards range from 30 per cent of tuition fees for Academic and General Excellence Scholarships to 50 per cent for Foundation Scholarships.
