St JAMES LODGE SCHOLARSHIP PLATTSBURG PUBLIC SCHOOL The St James Lodge of Wallsend will provide one scholarship to students entering Year 5 and Year 6 in 2023. A bursary amount of $250 will be paid to two successful applicants for the 2023 year. All funds will be retained by the school. Consideration will be given to applicants who can display potential to academically and civically thrive in the primary school environment and who would benefit from additional financial support. The scholarship funds are intended to be spent on items including: • Uniform Cost • Excursion Costs • Book Packs • Cultural Activities If the student leaves Plattsburg Public School before the end of the 2023 school year, the scholarship will lapse. Any unspent monies at the end of the scholarship period will be refunded to the St James Lodge scholarship fund. BASIC ELIGIBILITY • Attend Plattsburg Public School • Currently in Year 4 or Year 5 • Not in receipt of another scholarship, e.g. Smith Family Scholarship SELECTION CRITERIA • Have positive attitude towards school and high attendance rates • Demonstrated capacity to academically achieve • Evidence of participation in aspects of school life • One written reference from a teacher • Agree to the terms and conditions of the scholarship. SELECTION PROCESS A selection panel will review all scholarship applications and assess them against the selection criteria. The selection panel will include representatives of the St James Lodge (Wallsend), the Principal of Plattsburg Public School and a representative from the Plattsburg P&C Association. After considering all applications, the selection panel will recommend the selected applicants for the approval of the Wallsend Masonic Lodge Scholarship. The panel may choose to shortlist applicants and invite those shortlisted to an interview. Applicants will be notified of the outcome in writing. Prior to starting your application, you should compile the following information ready to submit: • A copy of all pages of your most recent school report • Evidence of your achievements at school and outside school activities (these can include photos) • A personal reference from a teacher at Plattsburg Public School (maximum 400 words) Note for Teachers: Please be aware that your reference is a critical component of the application form and your feedback is given considerable weight in the process of panel deliberations. The panel is looking for feedback that goes well beyond simple confirmation that you know the student, or that you endorse the application. SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION Please view the Student Application Sample and use the blank application to enter your evidence. Once you have finalized your application and all elements are complete (including references as required) you can submit it. Applications must be submitted by 3:00 P.M. on Friday 14 October 2022.
