Fo­cus on sup­port­ing the fam­i­lies

Central Queensland News - - RURALWEEKLY -

ST BREN­DAN’S Col­lege has sup­ported ru­ral and re­gional fam­i­lies to ed­u­cate their sons in Cen­tral Queens­land for more than 75 years, and in tough eco­nomic times the col­lege is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing fam­i­lies to con­tinue to make that choice.

St Bren­dan’s Col­lege prin­ci­pal Nick Scully said many fam­i­lies were not aware of the fi­nan­cial sup­port avail­able to ed­u­cate their chil­dren, whether it was As­sis­tance for Iso­lated Chil­dren (AIC), Liv­ing Away From Home Al­lowance (LAFHA) or for those fam­i­lies who are not re­mote, the col­lege also has Ed­mund Rice Bur­saries avail­able to sup­port those with fi­nan­cial con­straints.

“Our Ed­mund Rice Bur­saries are not a one-size-fits-all bur­sary, but are based on a for­mula which in­cludes in­for­ma­tion on fam­ily num­bers – one par­ent or two par­ent – the num­ber of chil­dren, em­ploy­ment sta­tus and hous­ing costs, to name a few of the con­sid­er­a­tions,” Mr Scully said.

The col­lege is lo­cated on a beau­ti­ful 300-acre cam­pus at Yep­poon.
