Thirty-four College scholarships were awarded at the semester two Scholarships Ceremony held on Wednesday 14th October 2015. The College holds two ceremonies each year to recognise students for their contribution to the College, academic success or to support their application for financial assistance. Importantly, scholarship ceremonies provide an opportunity to acknowledge the incredible generosity of our donors and supporters dating back to the 1930s and as recently as 2014.
It was fantastic to welcome benefactors and family members who presented scholarships and joined the Master at Formal Hall following the ceremony. In its second year, Dr John Boully presented the JM Boully scholarship to first year MBBS student Tim Trewren from Renmark. John lived at St Mark’s in the 1960s and in his final year as a medical student he lived at Yalata mission. John said that this experience was ‘life changing’ and he subsequently devoted his life as a practitioner and advocate for the improvement of aboriginal health services.
James Wells presented the Lendon Scholarship on behalf of his family to Sarah Trewren, in her third year of medicine at the University of Adelaide.
Martin Crabb, Business Development Manager at Programmed, presented the Programmed Scholarship to Nathan Harders. Nathan is in his third year of a Bachelor of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Programmed have been looking after the regular maintenance of the College since 1984 and we thank them for their ongoing support of our students.
Kardinia Caputo was the recipient of the DL & ME Pank Scholarship, presented by Jane Newland. Kardinia is in her first year of a Bachelor of Teaching and Arts.
