St Stephen’s School has announced two new scholarships for regional students to join their community in 2022.
The Regional Scholarships are available to Secondary students from regional WA commencing in Years 7-10 at either the Carramar or Duncraig campus, dependent on space, who have the intention of continuing to Year 12 at the School and a desire to pursue tertiary, apprenticeship or career opportunities after graduation.
Applications will be determined according to a range of criteria including community involvement, efforts towards academic achievement, a positive attitude to learning, enthusiastic involvement in co-curricular activities, good attendance, conduct and behaviour that aligns with the School values.
The coeducational scholarships are offered in conjunction with participation in the School’s award-winning Home Away From Home (HAFH) program, which offers a more bespoke homestay arrangement than traditional boarding and at a fraction of the cost.
“The HAFH program offers regional Secondary students the opportunity to study in the Perth metropolitan area, benefitting from a leading holistic education that offers all the academic and vocational pathways, extracurricular programs and pastoral support while going home to the comfort of a family home at the end of each day,” St Stephen’s School Principal Mrs Donella Beare said.
The HAFH program runs in partnership with established homestay provider Talkabout Homestay, who undertake strict checks and interviews to match students with local host families.
“It is a holistic approach that encourages strong relationships between the host family, regional family and School to best care and cater for each child’s learning and wellbeing,” Mrs Beare said.
The Regional Scholarships will grant partial or full remittance of tuition fees (at the Scholarship Committee’s discretion) but do not cover the cost of the homestay component.
Applications for the scholarships to start in 2022 are now open until October 1, 2021.
