Scholarships introduced at St Luke’s College
Two students will be given the opportunity to attend the Pilbara’s only private high school with the help of a new scholarship from one of the region’s big accommodation providers.
Cherratta Lodge will be offering two scholarships to St Luke’s College next year, with the endowment set to include books, fees and uniforms, totalling about $8000 a student each year.
The scholarships are open to students from Year 7 to 12 and will be provided every year until the students leave the school.
St Luke’s College principal Alanna Otway said the grants are an act of faith in the person that a young person can become.
“You’re talking about investing up to about $50,00 per child in their education,” she said.
“If we can offer an education which is potentially life changing for two students, who wouldn’t otherwise have access to it, that has the potential to change everything for their family and their future.”
Cherratta Lodge chief executive Malcolm Wylie said they had some great experiences with vocational students from St Luke’s in the past.
“We want to give back to the community; it’s not about where you live but what you can give,” he said. “We’re encouraging people that otherwise wouldn’t have the opportunity to go to St Luke’s to apply, especially people from diverse backgrounds.
Students can apply by submitting an application form, which are available in person at the school or online via the website.
