Our scholarship program for the 2018, Year 7 intake has been completed and the successful recipients, their families and respective primary schools have been notified.
As Principal at North Geelong SC, I am very proud to report to the school community that our scholarship program has attracted a large number of high quality candidates, which made it very difficult for the selection panel to make the final decision. The calibre of the students was outstanding. Congratulations to all who participated in the process.
The NGSC Scholarship Program promotes outstanding commitment of Primary School students who have displayed a strong involvement in their School Community. The College looks for outstanding young people who are exceptional in different areas and possess personal qualities and values that will contribute to the life of North Geelong Secondary College.
This Program also recognises the considerable achievements of children in our community and provides them with the opportunity to experience exciting curriculum opportunities through a broad range of engaging programs delivered by our outstanding teachers.
Our Year Seven scholarships are to the value of $4600. These scholarships will be presented by the Principal to the scholarship recipients and celebrated at their respective primary school assemblies early in Term 4. Family and friends of the scholarship recipients will be invited for the presentation.
