Shortly after the First World War, a group of Friends’ School Old Scholars set up a trust fund to support a student moving into Year 11 at Clemes, whose parent(s) had been adversely affected by war. This worthy cause has been modified over the years, extending the support to students who simply have an old scholar connection in their extended family, and more recently, omitting the word “War” from the title.
There is one grant of $4,000 towards Clemes fees in Term 1 and current Year 10 Friends’ students with any old scholar connection – parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts – are encouraged to apply.
The application form outlines the areas on which students will be evaluated. We are looking for a student who is academically sound, an active participant in the life of the school and strong in service. Students should provide details about their contributions in the application. A panel of Old Scholar Trustees and Heads of High School will shortlist the applicants and then conduct interviews.
