As a result of the generosity and support of the Clarendon community, the Clarendon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarships have now been established and applications are currently open.
In addition to providing life-changing opportunities for scholarship recipients, the development of the Clarendon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarships has enabled us to establish meaningful relationships with key individuals and organisations within the wider community. We continue to build these relationships and, with their guidance, promote the scholarships and encourage eligible students to apply.
“The Clarendon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Scholarships will enable local students to receive the benefits of a Clarendon education regardless of their circumstances,” said Co-Head of Senior School, Laura Brady. “These scholarships will enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to join a school community that supports each student to grow and achieve by discovering their full potential in a culturally responsive learning environment.”
Students and staff involved in the Reconciliation Action Plan Committee are working hard to execute Clarendon’s Reconciliation Action Plan and these scholarships play a significant role in conveying the importance of our commitment to Reconciliation to the broader community.
“An education at Ballarat Clarendon College means infinite possibilities for the young people who experience the opportunities our school provides,” said Year 12 student, Lily Wade.
Thank you to everyone who donated to enable these scholarships to be established.
Together, we can create a future filled with possibilities.
