Donations to St Andrew’s Cathedral School and Gawura

The Gawura Scholarship Fund

The SACS Foundation – Gawura Scholarship Fund supports disadvantaged Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Sydney.

Gawura is a primary day school for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children living in Sydney. Gawura delivers an intensive program 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 its own right in 2011. In 2017 Gawura celebrated a significant milestone – it’s 10th Anniversary! As students “graduate” from the Gawura Primary program, 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.

Heath Bursary Fund

The Heath Bursary Fund was established in honour of Mr Phillip Heath’s contribution as Head of St Andrew’s Cathedral School from 1995 – 2009. It was founded by parents of the school, Simon and Julie Gandevia. The fund has been strongly supported by students, the SACS Association of Parents and Friends and the Old Andrean’s Association, which reflects the deep sense of community at SACS.

The Heath Bursary Fund aims to provide short-term fees support to families of enrolled students, who experience unforeseen financial difficulties such as: 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 will be reviewed at least annually. The amount and number of scholarships will be limited to the availability of funds. Students who are awarded the scholarship will: display a real desire to continue their education at SACS; embrace what SACS has to offer; positively contribute to the life and ethos of the school; and be unable to continue their education at SACS without the scholarship.
