Scholarships for new enrolments in 2019 celebrate the vision and ethos of Blessed Edmund Rice our College Founder who valued access to and engagement in quality education for all children. Successful recipients of scholarships are expected to uphold the College values of Faith, Excellence, Community and Compassion. Christian Brothers College awards up to 75% scholarships for students with high potential in the following areas:
- Academic Scholarship (R-6 or 7-12)
Recognises students with exceptional academic aptitude.
- Indigenous Heritage Scholarship (R-6 or 7-12)
Recognises students with Indigenous heritage who will contribute positively to College life.
- Music Scholarship (7-12)
Recognises students with exceptional music talent who will enhance the College Music program.
- Sports Scholarship (R-6 or 7-12)
Recognises a student who excels at sport and will represent the College in that sport.
- Edmund Rice Scholarship (R-6 and 7-12)
Supports students who do not have the opportunity or means to enrol at CBC. This scholarship commemorates the vision and life of the College Founder Edmund Rice and reflects the College values of Faith, Excellence, Community and Compassion.
The maximum amount of student discount a family can receive is the greater of the scholarship or school card and/or sibling discount. For example, the maximum amount an approved school card family (inclusive of sibling discount) can receive is 50%. Parents already receiving school card are therefore not eligible for a scholarship of 50% or less.
Scholarships cover tuition fees and therefore families are responsible for the payment of the additional resourcing of their son’s education for items such as uniforms, IT levy, VET and interstate/overseas trips. All scholarships are reviewed annually for the duration of the scholarship R-6 or 7-12.
All successful applicants are expected to demonstrate a positive contribution in all aspects of College life including actively supporting and engaging with the Catholic ethos of the College and co-curricular activities.
