Our students can take advantage of several scholarship and award opportunities.
The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award - Australia provides an internationally recognised, self-development program for people aged 14 to 25. The program equips young people with the opportunity to undertake a variety of voluntary and challenging activities.
The Nanga Mai Awards are an annual event organised by Aboriginal Education and Communities Directorate. The awards will be presented to selected Aboriginal students, Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal teachers, other Departmental staff, community members, schools and external organisations working in partnership with schools to improve educational achievements in the area of Aboriginal education and community engagement.
This Premier’s Reading Challenge encourages students from Kindergarten to Year 9 to develop a love of reading and plays an important role in developing literacy.
The Simpson Prize (link: http//www.simpsonprize.org/) is a national competition for Year 9 and 10 students. The competition encourages participants to explore the significance of the Anzac experience and what it has meant for Australia. Eight winners are chosen from each State and Territory with the opportunity to visit overseas battlefields and participate in Anzac Day commemorations.
The Premier's Debating Challenge students work in teams to develop cohesive arguments under timed conditions on a variety of focus areas including school, sport and politics. A keen insight into current affairs assists students in developing detailed and logical arguments based in fact. Teams compete in a round robin series of debates against other schools. The winners go on to compete at regional and state level to determine the eventual state champion.
The Arts Unit offers public speaking competitions for NSW school students. Each competition is a great opportunity for students to develop their speech-writing and presentation skills while representing their schools in a state-wide competition.
The Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarships are an opportunity to visit significant overseas sites associated with Australia’s participation in war for Years 10 and 11 students in selected schools.
