A culture of giving has been at the heart of St Peter’s College for generations. Acts of generosity have sustained our School since it was first founded in 1847. This year, we are proud to announce the launch of our Annual Giving Appeal, an opportunity for our community to come together and support a cause close to our hearts.
Our Annual Giving Appeal for 2023 is named in honor of one of our own – the St Peter’s College Foundation Thomas Worrall Scholarship, dedicated to the memory of Year 9 student, Thomas Worrall, who was part of our community for nearly nine years. He will be remembered as a warm-hearted, committed, and enthusiastic student, he was also a keen rower.
With the support of Thomas’ family, we have established this scholarship to create a lasting legacy in his name, while also acknowledging the Worrall family’s contribution to our School community. Starting from 2024, the Thomas Worrall Scholarship will enable a deserving student, who may not have had the opportunity otherwise, to join our School in Year 9 and receive support throughout their studies and co-curricular activities until the completion of Year 12.
The importance of scholarships like these cannot be overstated. They open doors to educational opportunities for talented individuals who may lack the financial means to pursue them. By supporting the Thomas Worrall Scholarship, we can provide an all-round education that will empower a deserving student, just as it has done for many others in the past.
Reflecting on his own experience, one of our donors, a former recipient of a similar scholarship, shared, “I started in Year 9 on a similar scholarship. The all-round education I received has stood me in good stead for life. I hope my gift will go some small way to helping someone deserving enjoy the benefits I have had.”
We believe a St Peter’s College education is a tremendous privilege that has the power to transform lives. This is our chance to extend this transformative opportunity to others within our wider community. By supporting the Annual Giving Appeal in 2023, you can make a difference in the lives of deserving students and contribute to their future success.
We invite you to join with us as a community and donate to the St Peter’s College Foundation Thomas Worrall Scholarship. Your contribution, no matter the size, will make a meaningful impact. Together, we can continue the tradition of giving that has been the cornerstone of our School’s legacy.
