All three candidates will be setting off for their first year at university with the financial support from the Warburton and Yarra Junction Community Bank® branches and we’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate them and wish them well.
These young people will be studying:
Miss Mary McIntosh – Bachelor of Education – Primary and Secondary Health and Physical Education – Monash University (Peninsula campus)
Ms Talitha Boone – Bachelor of Outdoor Education at La Trobe University (Bendigo)
Mr Sebastian Northey – Diploma of Digital Interactive Media, RMIT (Melbourne)
Our Scholarships program helps young people in the valley realise their academic dreams. We aim to provide support for expenses that might otherwise dissuade our young people from taking the leap towards tertiary education.
We know these three fine young people will make their community proud and in time will bring valuable skills back to the Upper Yarra Valley. Well done everyone!
We’ll post their stories on soon.
