Ensuring Access to Education 

The Bursary Committee provides financial assistance through a tax-deductible fund awarded on a ‘needs basis’. This system assists students and their families who would otherwise be unable to attend the College. We invite parents, guardians and the wider community to consider contributing to the fund, which is at the heart of the Presentation tradition of providing an education for those most in need.
