The Gawura Scholarship Fund
The St Andrew’s Cathedral School Foundation – Gawura Scholarship Fund supports our Gawura K-6 school for First Nations students, and First Nations Scholarships for Years 7-12 at St Andrew’s Cathedral School.
Gawura is a primary day school for First Nations children living in Sydney. Gawura delivers an intensive programme of literacy and numeracy development in a vibrant environment that celebrates and strengthens Indigenous culture. Based in the heart of Sydney’s CBD, Gawura was set up in 2007 by St Andrew’s Cathedral School. It became a school in it’s own right in 2011. As students “graduate” from the Gawura Primary programme, they are offered scholarships at St Andrew’s Cathedral School for their Secondary education. Your tax-deductible donation will help us provide the life-changing gift of a quality education for these deserving students.
St Andrew’s Cathedral School Building Fund
The St Andrew’s Cathedral School Foundation Building Fund provides an important source of funding for capital projects. Your tax-deductible donation goes directly to support building plans, allowing us to continually improve the facilities at St Andrew’s Cathedral School to meet the emerging needs and challenges in contemporary education.
Heath Bursary Fund
The Heath Bursary Fund has been strongly supported by students, the Association of Parents and Friends and the Old Andrean’s Association, which reflects the deep sense of community at St Andrew’s Cathedral School.
It aims to provide short-term fees support to families who experience unforeseen financial difficulties due to: the death of a parent; long-term illness of a family member; a change in employment situation or family break-up.
The support is awarded at the discretion of the Head of School for a period of up to one year and is reviewed at least annually. The amount and number of bursaries will be limited to the availability of funds. Students who are awarded the bursary will: display a real desire to continue their education at St Andrew’s Cathedral School; embrace what St Andrew’s has to offer; positively contribute to the life and ethos of the school; and be unable to continue their education at St Andrew’s without the bursary.
