At Lyndale Secondary College we annually offer all Year 6 students intending to enrol at our school four different scholarships. These scholarships offer a form of encouragement and support to our students.
These Scholarships are awarded on the basis of an application, a referenced application and an interview.
Please note that students may apply for more than one type of scholarship, but they must complete an application for each type of scholarship they wish to be considered for.
The Scholarships are awarded on the basis of sound academic potential, the ability to demonstrate leadership skills, and some of the talents in the areas of sport, visual art and performing arts.
Print out and complete the form by 3.30 p.m. on Friday 25th June 2021 and select the scholarship/s you are applying for.
