General Excellence Scholarship – Son of Old Collegians entering Year 7
The Whitefriars Old Collegians Association (WOCA) funds a percentage of the ‘tuition’ element of the all-inclusive school fee for the duration of study, provided that the recipients overall behaviour and contribution to the College is deemed, by the Principal, to be satisfactory.
All families eligible for the WOCA Scholarship will be notified by the College. If this has not happened by the end of February, please contact the Development and Enrolment Office.
Academic Excellence Scholarships – Current Whitefriars Year 8 Students
As part of our ongoing endeavour to continually develop the learning culture among our students, the College provides three Academic Excellence Scholarships to be awarded each year to current Whitefriars Year 8 students. These scholarships cover the ‘Tuition’ element of the all-inclusive school fee for Years 9 & 10.
If the recipient of a scholarship awarded for Years 9 & 10 is in the top 10% of academic achievers (as calculated according to the system by which Academic Excellence Awards are made) at the end of Year 10, the scholarship, covering the ‘Tuition’ element of the all-inclusive fee, will be renewed for Years 11 & 12.
These scholarships are offered as both a reward for and an incentive to strive for excellence. Scholarships will be awarded to the three students who achieve the highest overall results in a Scholarship Test, provided that their overall behaviour and contribution to the College is deemed, by the Principal, to be satisfactory. The Test will be set, administered and marked by Edutest, an expert and experienced independent testing body.
Once scholarships have been awarded by the Principal, no discussion or correspondence about these decisions will be entered into.
“Whitefriars College is a very special and nurturing environment. Once you are a student at the College, you belong to the Whitefriars community for life. This strong sense of community makes new students feel comfortable and confident, thanks to the pastoral care system. The staff ensure every student believes that he can become anything he sets his mind to and equips him with the academic skills to help him reach his goals.”Dean Mendes – Student, Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws, Deakin University (Class of 2012)
