Bursaries available at St Saviour’s College

ST SAVIOUR’S College is doing its bit for drought relief by offering eight bursaries for young women, from Years 7 through to Year 12.

The bursaries begin in 2019 and cover 75% of all boarding and tuition fees for the entire duration of the student’s stay at the college.

“As a proud Mercy College committed to the holistic learning of young women, the college is dedicated to following in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley, and the traditions of the Mercy Sisters, who opened the college in 1873,” principal Sharon Collins said.

“Catherine provided education and support to young women in times of need. She empowered the women of their time, to liberate themselves through their education to promote their resilience and independence. St Saviour’s College continues this Mercy legacy today.”

The college boasts an extensive curriculum across a variety of pathways, providing an inclusive, quality education, that is individually tailored so all students experience academic success.

Recent NAPLAN results indicate learning performance improvement, having ranked fourth top school in Toowoomba for Year 9.

The college is also known for strong “relative academic growth” in their students, indicating that Year 7 results are consistently improved in relation to a cohort’s Year 9 results two years later.

Over the past two years the college has seen a $1 million upgrade in its boarding facilities. The college has new bathroom and toilet facilities, living areas, window fittings, furnishings, mattresses and air conditioning. Students also enjoy a variety of nutritious, tasty meals that are prepared on site.
