Donate online to help us celebrate our 95th birthday and contribute to The Wesley College Scholarship Fund.

 

The Wesley community has time and again proven itself generous, supporting the many programs, activities and capital developments that have made us the College we are today – whether by volunteering their time, donating in-kind resources or financial gifts.

 

This year we’re inviting members of the community to contribute to The Wesley College Scholarship Fund. Each year Wesley College awards scholarships to more than 25 students. Indigenous, academic, rural, music and general excellence—students with unlimited potential. Join us in granting opportunity to the next generation of Wesleyans.

 

The College’s Scholarship Program has granted opportunities for many students like Casey York (05–09) and Devyn Jackamarra (06–09), talented, motivated and energetic men with a genuine thirst for lifelong learning. Students who profoundly believe their Wesley education provided the foundation for their success.

What have you been up to since leaving Wesley?

What have you been up to since leaving Wesley?

After five and a half years of study (and enjoying the university student lifestyle), I headed overseas for six months of travel through Europe and America. In January 2016, I started work as a lawyer at Allen & Overy. I quickly discovered that the life of a lawyer wasn’t for me and in July 2017 I was offered my dream job at the Fremantle Dockers. One of my favourite projects is overseeing the club’s newly established Next Generation Academy, which has significant ties to the Kimberley region in WA.
