Kinross Wolaroi School offers a number of Scholarships each year to students entering into Years 4 to 11. Applicants may be future or continuing students. Scholarships are only available to Australian citizens and permanent residents of Australia.
An interview with the Principal or Head of the Preparatory School is part of the scholarship process.
Online registrations for cooperative schools testing will be available in the later part of 2012. Please check back regularly for dates.
Applicants going into Years 4, 5 or 6 or into secondary classes are required to sit a Scholarship examination set and marked by the Australian College of Educational Research (ACER). The examination will be held in February. Applicants sit for the examination in the year before they wish to receive the benefits of a Scholarship.
The School also provides scholarships for particular achievements in one or a range of areas such as music, drama or public speaking. Students hoping to win one of these scholarships must also sit the written examination. Supporting documentation of the student's achievements or talent in these areas should be provided. Auditions will be carried out at an appointed time for students aspiring to a music scholarship.
Students entering Year 7 and whose parents are members of the Isolated Children's Parents' Association can apply for an ICPA scholarship which has different criteria to that mentioned above. The ICPA Scholarship covers up to 80% of the total of the tuition and boarding fee less the full AIC allowance. Applications for this Scholarship should be made during the first half of the year as they are to be completed by late July.
