- They should also possess a high level of all round ability, a strong Christian faith and a willingness to be involved in the wider community.
The Process to Apply

Students who will be awarded a Scholarship are required to have an interview with the Principal. Students not currently enrolled at the College will be subject to the usual enrolment procedures. An enrolment pack is available from the Administration Office.
The Principal may take the families' ability to pay fees into account and parents/guardians in this situation should discuss this with the Principal during the interview process.
Scholarship values vary from 15% to 50% of the annual tuition fees and offer remission on these fees for a period of up to 3 years provided the student adheres to the scholarship conditions. These scholarships provide the means to develop a well-rounded and talented student who might not otherwise have the chance to achieve their potential.
All scholarships are reviewed annually and the continuation of a scholarship is dependent on the recipient's performance, academic effort, behaviour, participation and contribution to the overall life of the College. Scholarships in Year 7 are valid for 3 years, while in Year 10 they are continuous until the student completes Year 12.
