Student Awards

The Alumni Association offers a number of awards, scholarships and bursaries for students. These are designed to acknowledge achievement, reward excellence and assist students in need. 

Entrance Awards

This award is presented on the basis of leadership ability, community and school involvement, and academic standing.
