A special opportunity for students entering Year 3 in 2021 is on offer, with Christian College’s ‘Learning That Matters’ (LTM) Scholarships.

Scholarships will be awarded to a small number of Year 3 students at each of the Junior School Campuses for the duration of their educational journey at Christian College.

Campuses locations are at Belmont, Drysdale and Torquay.

Principal Glen McKeeman says a young person’s future is moulded by their experiences today.

“A quality education creates a pathway that determines and shapes what a child might do, where they may go and equip them to get there,” he explains.

“At Christian College, the focus is on delivering learning that sparks curiosity, that is lifelong, that nurtures the whole person, that fosters a sense of community and inspires individuals to make a difference in their world on their life’s journey – learning that matters.”

A Year 3 LTM Scholarship at Christian College Geelong provides opportunities for children to further develop their passion for learning and guide them towards a flourishing future.

“We are seeking students who are outstanding citizens, have a thirst for learning, are curious and keen to make a positive difference in the lives of others, but due to financial circumstances, have been unable to consider or take up an educational opportunity at Christian College Geelong,” Mr McKeeman says.

“The goal of the LTM Scholarship is to uncover the full breadth of a student’s capabilities and develop their gifts and talents, as they actively contribute to the faith and culture of Christian College.”

Applying for an LTM Scholarship

LTM Scholarship information and the Application for Enrolment form can be found on the website.

As well as completing this form, students are required to submit a piece of work – an artefact – that demonstrates their understanding and captures their own ideas about making the world a better place for others.

This could be a poster, short story, short video or multimedia production, a song, a piece of creative artwork – or anything else that demonstrates their awareness of, and commitment to, working individually and/or collectively towards improving our world in a way that benefits the lives of others.

The application also asks for a copy of the student’s most recent school report to be submitted.

Applications close at 4pm on Friday, October 23.

• Congruence with the core values of Christian College Geelong.
