Every year the PLC Old Collegians’ Association Inc awards three bursaries.
The Olive Cusack Bursary
This bursary recognises a boarding daughter or granddaughter of an Old Collegian in Year 9 for Year 10. The selected student should demonstrate an understanding of the needs of others, participate in a wide range of activities organised by the School community, and show a commitment to personal excellence, particularly in the Boarding House. The recipient will receive one term’s tuition fee.
The Dr Vera Summers Bursary
This bursary is awarded to a daughter or granddaughter of an Old Collegian in Year 10 for Year 11. The selected student should demonstrate an exemplary character, attitude, conduct and academic achievement. The recipient will receive one term’s tuition fee.
The Heather Barr Memorial Bursary
This bursary recognises participation and contribution to PLC and is awarded to “the girl entering Year 12 who most clearly displays the qualities which reflect the principles espoused by Miss Barr”. The selected student should be dedicated to the ideals and educational objectives of the school and she will have distinguished herself by showing selflessness, tolerance and compassion towards her peers and her juniors, demonstrating the maturity and judgment she has acquired during her years at PLC. The recipient will receive one term’s tuition fee.
Bursary applications open in July each year and are awarded in September. For further information, please contact OCA Co-ordinator, Leo Nye firstname.lastname@example.org
