The Music Scholarship is for students entering Years 7 to 12 in 2025. It recognises an outstanding musician who has attained a high level of performance. The value of the scholarship is generally 50% of the College’s academic tuition fee and 100% of the 30 -minute music lesson tuition fees. The scholarship is for the duration of the student’s attendance at the College and is conditional upon ongoing excellence in, and commitment to, the All Saints’ Music Program. An audition with the Director of Music for short-listed candidates is an integral part of the process of awarding scholarships.
Please note that it is a condition that music scholarship recipients are active members of the College Choir and at least one other College ensemble. They should also choose Music elective classes at least until the end of Year 9 or Year 10 and be prepared to participate in Music recitals and Music camps. (No academic examinations are required.)
An annual review may be conducted to discuss the student’s attitude, activity and contribution to their scholarship.
