Scholarships are awarded according to the results of the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) scholarship examination and an interview with the Headmaster or his delegate. Students who apply for a Music Scholarship must also sit the examination and will be required to audition later in the day.
Scholarships offered by All Saints are sub-school specific and are generally for 25% or 50% concession of the academic tuition fees. For Music Scholarships free lessons on one instrument are also offered. Occasionally Music Bursaries are offered and these provide free music lessons. Scholarships/ Music Bursaries are reviewed annually and students must maintain their academic standard to retain their scholarship.
Procedure for Applying to sit the Scholarship Examinations
Applications for the All Saints 2018 ACER Scholarship examinations can only be made online by accessing the School website with updated details scheduled to appear in October.
Procedure for Sitting the Scholarship Examinations
Parents and students should assemble in the Nairn Theatre from 8:30am. Please see the link to the School map on this page for directions and parking.
Scholarship candidates are required to bring two black or blue pens, two HB or B pencils and an eraser. No other equipment is permitted. Students are not permitted to a have a mobile phone or device with them in the examination room.
A light morning tea will be provided to students between examinations.
The Headmaster, Mr Patrick Wallas, will be happy to speak to parents and show them around the School from 9.00am. Morning tea will be served for parents at the conclusion of the tour.
Information for Candidates Applying for Music Scholarships
Candidates Applying for Music Scholarships are also asked to bring a résumé of their musical achievements to the audition. Please note students may need to put aside all of Saturday, as in the past the large number of candidates has necessitated auditions occurring during most of the afternoon.
It is expected that students who wish to audition for a Music Scholarship be of at least Grade/Level 4 AMEB for entry into Year 7 and at least Level 5 AMEB for entry into Year 10 or Year 11 or equivalent standard on their instrument. Vocal auditionees should be at a standard suited to the development of the individual voice and demonstrate vocal range, stylistic understanding, tonal quality and presentation ability. It is to the advantage of vocalists to show evidence of other instrumental experience. All Saints is particularly interested in male singers or instrumentalists who play Oboe, Double Bass or lower brass instruments (French Horn, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba). Students who demonstrate potential in one of these areas are encouraged to apply even if they don’t quite satisfy the Grade standard minima. Students wishing to audition will be required to prepare an excerpt from a piece presently being studied on their music instrument (piece to be unaccompanied) or voice, and be prepared to undertake a short sight reading test and some aural testing. The music audition timetable will be displayed in the foyer of the Nairn Theatre on the morning of the written examination.
