About Scholarships

Avondale School is proud to offer a revised Scholarship Program for students commencing in 2021 for Year 7 and Year 11.



Avondale School seeks to recognise and value outstanding students. Scholarships are offered at various year levels to recoginise the excellence and contribution of current students to provide opportunity for new students to attend Avondale School and become part of the school community.


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.
