Mumbulla School Scholarship

A Mumbulla School Scholarship enables a child to attend Mumbulla School from Kindergarten to Class 6, their whole primary school journey. Our first scholarship recipient started in 2020. When sufficient funds are available to offer another scholarship then we will open applications once again. Please see criteria + conditions to determine eligibility.

 

Maddy Collins Scholarship

The Maddy Collins Scholarship was 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 was created to benefit children with special needs who may wish to attend Mumbulla School. 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.  The Maddy Collins Scholarship is now open for applicants.  Closing date is 31 August 2022, with a decision being made in September 2022. The successful recipient will start school in 2023.
