Beaconhills College has welcomed 20 talented students and their families to the College’s scholarship program.

The new scholars attended an afternoon tea which included a formal welcome from the Headmaster Tony Sheumack, speeches by current scholars and musical performances.

Performing Arts scholar and School Captain Mitchell H told students that “each and every one of you has a gift” and to make the most of the opportunities at Beaconhills.

He said since attaining his scholarship “many doors had been opened” and he had grown as a performer.

The College offers just 20 scholarship places each year in the categories of Academic, General Excellence and Performing Arts, providing up to a 50 per cent reduction on basic tuition fees. Applicants must sit a test run by a professional external provider.

Mr Sheumack said the College had maintained a high level of integrity with the scholarship program for many years. He said scholarships were not liberally handed out, but awarded only to the most deserving, dedicated and talented students.

“Our scholars are required to be actively involved in the life of the school. Their aim is to give as well as receive,” he said.

Applications for 2017 scholarship are now open. You can find more information about the program on the scholarship page.
