Bursaries

Bursaries are means-tested awards which are given to help support families who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford some, or all of the school fees.

Application for Entry into Year 10

Marist College Ashgrove’s Academic Bursary is for students who have demonstrated a high achievement in academics and also possess qualities compatible with the values and ethos of the College. Preference is given to those students who would greatly benefit from a Marist College Ashgrove education, but who, without financial assistance, would be unable to attend. The bursary covers half tuition and half compulsory fees for Years 10 to 12. The remaining half tuition, compulsory and miscellaneous fees are the responsibility of the Parent(s)\legal guardian(s).

Bursary Expectations

The student should:

  1. The bursary will be confirmed through a successful interview with the Headmaster.
  1. Demonstrate achievement in academics and a continued effort and sustained commitment to improving academic performance.

  1. The College will monitor, record and assess the progress of the student. If a student does not maintain academic performance, Marist College Ashgrove will advise the student and parent(s)\legal guardian(s) in writing of its intention to withdraw the bursary support.

  1. Regular attendance and punctuality at the College and all classes is required. All absences from the College should be accompanied by a medical certificate, an explanatory communication from the student’s parent(s)\legal guardian(s) or evidence that leave has been approved by the College.

  1. Demonstrate a willingness to participate in and contribute to school life.

  1. Show support to the leadership role that is implicit for all bursary holders. This includes being a positive role model for younger students, displaying leadership by encouraging and supporting other boys and fostering team and College spirit. This also requires the student and parent(s)\legal guardian(s) to demonstrate overt support for the values of the College both at school and outside school.

  1. Be committed to the College’s ethos.
  2. Parent(s)\legal guardian(s) of bursary recipients are expected to provide support to College activities by volunteering to assist in events and activities when possible.

  3. The bursary covers half tuition and half compulsory fees for Years 10 to 12. The remaining half tuition, compulsory and miscellaneous fees are the responsibility of the Parent(s)\legal guardian(s). Parent(s)\legal guardian(s) are required to fulfil their commitments to the College building fund and maintain a regular Foundation pledge.

10. If a student withdraws prior to the completion of Year 12, you will be charged the entire cost of the tuition and compulsory fees.
