Kick Start Scholarship

Kick Start Scholarship 2023

Tanya Thompson’s Kick Start Scholarship represents the very essence of potential and ambition, aiming to recognise and support the aspirations of our young high school students.

This scholarship supports those who exhibit not only academic or sporting excellence but also a determination to excel beyond the confines of a classroom.

I understand firsthand the challenges that families can face in providing education to their children. Coming from a family that worked tirelessly to put three children through school, and now as a parent who has raised five daughters, I understand the financial strain that educational pursuits can place upon families.

This scholarship is not just about financial assistance; it’s about opportunity. It’s a chance for a deserving student to embark on their educational journey with an added advantage, a head start towards a brighter future. I believe that students who demonstrate the drive to achieve more, to be more, deserve to be recognised.
