The Waverley College scholarship program fulfils two key goals: to provide equality of access to those who otherwise would not seek enrolment, and to encourage our students to realise their potential and strive for excellence. When you give to The Scholarship Fund, you are giving the gift of a Waverley College education – a gift that transforms lives. Make your donation online today.
Waverley College welcomes the opportunity to discuss your giving options and how you can maximise your support. One donor who approached us about our Scholarship Program was Mr George Rummery QC.
George Rummery established a music scholarship in memory of his son, George William Rummery, Class of 1986. George William Rummery’s life ended tragically in 1982 when he was a Year 8 student at Waverley College.
George showed great musical talent, and for this reason, the Rummery family created the George William Rummery Scholarship which is awarded to students of the College who display particular aptitude and interest in music. The scholarship assists with music tuition fees and instrument hire on an ongoing basis for a student from Year 7 to 12, with one scholarship to be awarded annually.
“And, whilst it is an attempt to honour him – to provide what is hopefully a permanent memorial to a much loved and greatly missed son and brother – more importantly, it may well be a means of extending the utility of his life.” George Rummery, speaking about the scholarship set up in his son’s name
