Creating future leaders

The extraordinary commitment of Wesley alumni, parents and friends make it possible for the College to provide scholarship and bursaries to young people. Young people bursting with unlimited potential.

With your help, we can continue to create a robust, varied, and challenging learning community of future leaders. Students who grab hold of every opportunity that Wesley has to offer and once leaving school go out into the world and dare to make a difference.

Wesley College accepts donations into the following scholarship funds:

  • Wesley College Scholarship Fund (including the Sarah Hardey Centenary Scholarship Fund)
  • Wesley College Indigenous Scholarship Fund
  • OWCA’s Mildred Manning Scholarship Fund

The above funds are endorsed as deductible gift recipients (DGR) and donations to these funds are tax deductible.

The original Wesley heroine

Sarah Hardey had a passion for education and providing opportunities for those who needed them most. She was one of Wesley College’s very first donors and gave much of the money needed to buy the land that the school still sits on and went on to generously support scholarships.

Without Miss Hardey we wouldn’t be here today. To honour the vital role that she played the College established the Sarah Hardey Centenary Scholarship Fund  in 2023.

This endowed, community-funded scholarship will offer life-changing opportunities to young people from a diverse range of backgrounds and allow them to thrive and excel at Wesley.

A legacy that will change lives

Whether to honour a loved one, family member or past staff member, named scholarships are a special way of creating a legacy that lives on through the students that benefit from the opportunities a Wesley scholarship provides.

Each of the named scholarships supported by donors have been funded in diverse ways, some are funded partially or are full scholarships. They can support either one student from Year 7 to Year 12 or some scholarships can support up to five students at any one time. Each scholarship is unique and depends on the wishes and circumstances of each donor.
