Mumbulla School Scholarship

When sufficient funds are available to offer it to an additional child, we will open up applications.Please see criteria + conditions to determine eligibility.

Maddy Collins Scholarship

This Scholarship has been created by Maddy’s extended family to celebrate the beautiful gift of education, inclusion and love provided to Maddy by the Mumbulla School community over 8 years. Maddy has a dual diagnosis of Down Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorder. She entered Kindergarten in 2012 and graduated from Class 6 in 2019. This Scholarship is for the benefit of other child/ren with special needs who may wish to attend Mumbulla School in the future. This is a wonderful legacy in Maddy’s name which the school is proud to establish. The Board and the College of Teachers are enormously grateful to the Collins family for their generosity and goodwill..

How to donate to the Scholarship Fund:

In late 2018 we held a cake stall at the Bega River Day. A local businessman bought a muffin and asked what the group were fundraising for. This conversation led to the generous annual donation to the Scholarship fund of $5,000. We still can’t believe we sold a $5,000 muffin!

Donations are accepted at any time for Mumbulla School for Rudolf Steiner Education’s Scholarship Fund.  Any gift over $2 is tax deductible. Donations can be made directly into Mumbulla School for Rudolf Steiner Education’s Scholarship Fund:
