Avondale School is proud to offer a revised Scholarship Program for students commencing in 2020 in Years 5, 7, 9 and 11.
Contributions by students are recognised and encouraged by Avondale School. We have thereby established a Citizenship Award for those going into Years 5, 7 & 9. Avondale’s desire is for deep learning for our students, which acknowledges the contribution made by good citizens to the character of our school campus. Avondale School also recognises essential character traits valued by local and global communities.
Senior students are encouraged to continue into Years 11 & 12 in both academic and trade pathway options. The offer of gaining a Certificate II or Certificate III in a school environment can be very attractive in establishing the foundations for further success.
A new Music Scholarship is an exciting step to offer students going into Year 7 who have a love and passion for music, and have demonstrated the desire to develop their skills, and have experienced the exposure of performance-based events.
