handshake Become a Bursary Partner

We thank God for our amazing community here at SMĀĻ°ķ!

Each year, our community gives generously to the SMĀĻ°ķ Bursary Program, and prayerfully and practically stand alongside the families in our community who are facing financial hardship.

In 2023, the Bursary Program made Christian education possible for 61 families at SMĀĻ°ķ!

We need your help in 2024 to continue to support more families who need financial assistance.

Why the Bursary Fund?

SMĀĻ°ķ Christian School does not offer academic, music or sporting scholarships. We believe all children are valuable because of their creator, not their gifts and abilities.

A Christian education should be available to as many Christian families as possible. To this end, SMĀĻ°ķ has established a fund to provide bursaries for study at the school. SMĀĻ°ķ recognises the sacrifice families make to ensure their children receive a Christ-centred education.

A bursary is an agreed percentage discount to school fees. A limited number of bursaries are available to students from Kindergarten to Year 12. This is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial merit and/or need. The fund is administered by the SMĀĻ°ķ Christian School Board who will determine the value, number and duration of each bursary on an annual basis.
