All Saints Anglican School is offering scholarships for students entering Years 7, 10 and 11 in 2020, who are Australian citizens, or students on a Visa that is not an Overseas Student Visa Subclass.
Our scholarship categories include:
Scholarships are awarded according to the results of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) scholarship examination and an interview with the Headmaster or his delegate.
Scholarships offered by All Saints are sub-school specific and are generally for a 25% or 50% concession of the academic tuition fees. For Music Excellence Scholarships free lessons on one instrument are also offered. Occasionally music bursaries are offered and these also provide free music lessons. Scholarships and music bursaries are reviewed annually and students must maintain their academic standard to retain their scholarship.
To be considered for a scholarship at All Saints Anglican School, families must complete an online registration for the ACER Scholarship Testing Program. Registrations are now open and will close at midnight on Wednesday 13 February 2019 and no further registrations will be taken after this time.
To register, go to scholarships.acer.edu.au/intro/1598.
Once a registration has been submitted, parents will receive an email with further information. Students will need to prepare a comprehensive resume which includes copies of the student’s last two school reports, their latest NAPLAN results (for Year 7 and Year 10 candidates who are not current All Saints students) and supporting material documenting other achievements. Music students should also submit copies of examination or music certificates and any other awards pertaining to their involvement at school and beyond. This resume should be in PDF format, limited to 20 pages and forwarded by email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Sunday 10 February 2019.
The scholarship examinations will be held at All Saints Anglican School on Saturday 23 February 2019, beginning at 8.15am and concluding at 11.45am. Further details pertaining to scholarship exam procedures and requirements will be sent via email the week prior to the scholarship exam day.
Students who apply for a Music Excellence Scholarship must also sit the examination on Saturday 23 February 2019 and will be required to audition later in the day. It is expected that students who wish to audition for a Music Scholarship be of at least Grade 4 AMEB or equivalent standard on their instrument if applying in Year 7 and at least Grade 5 AMEB for Years 10 and 11.
Vocal auditionees should be at a standard suited to the development of the individual voice and demonstrate vocal range, stylistic understanding, tonal quality and presentation ability. It is to the advantage of vocalists to show evidence of other instrumental experience. All Saints is particularly interested in male singers or instrumentalists who play Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Double Bass or lower brass instruments (French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba). Students who demonstrate potential in one of these areas are encouraged to apply even if they don’t quite satisfy the standard minima.
Students wishing to audition will be required to prepare an excerpt from a piece presently being studied on their music instrument (piece to be unaccompanied) or voice, and be prepared to undertake a short sight reading test and some aural testing. The music audition timetable will be displayed in the foyer of the Nairn Theatre on the morning of the written examination. Students who are successful in gaining a Music Scholarship at All Saints are expected to be diligent in their home music practice, attend all concerts and other musical events and be a member of at least two musical ensembles.
