Herman Meyer Award

In 2007 the parish was given a generous donation from the Meyer family, after the passing of their father Herman. Fr Paul, our parish priest gave the school from this donation $5000, to put in trust and award a recipient each year a cheque for $500, to be used towards their high school education. The selection for this student was one that personifies the school motto and lives their faith.

In 2011, Ms Liz Macqueen – Herman’s daughter, donated a further $2500 to continue the scholarship until 2021.

A plaque is displayed in the hall and the child receives a cheque.
