Giving families a helping hand

Collegiate is dedicated to supporting students who have been impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. These are turbulent times for all of us, with many families, jobs and businesses affected.

Right now it’s more important than ever for us to help those that need it most. Collegiate’s Scholarship Fund provides assistance through bursaries and equity scholarships to families experiencing financial distress.

Our top priority is community safety and wellbeing and we are doing everything possible to provide support to those reaching out.

How can you help?

If you are able to, a simple way for you to help vulnerable families is to give to the Scholarship Fund. It has never been more critical for us to come together to support each other, but most importantly, to support those experiencing hardship.

Please support the Scholarship Fund so families facing immediate challenges can benefit from the extraordinary learning opportunities at Collegiate.

Every dollar you give helps, with 100% of your gift going directly to families in need.

We could not be more thankful for the positive support our community is offering during this time of crisis.

The Collegiate Museum

The Collegiate Museum will be located in Cananore. Cananore was designed by respected colonial architect Alexander Dawson, also the architect of Domain House and the Royal Engineers Building. Built in 1848 for the Watchorn family, it is a fine example of Victorian Regency architecture and is a fitting home for the museum.

1+2 Architecture has developed an approach to the design of the museum that will provide a welcoming entrance by carefully restoring the Davey St forecourt and garden. Once inside, the visitor will be presented with a thoughtfully curated display of exhibits drawing from the school’s great collection of historic artefacts, telling the story of Collegiate’s 129-year history. Contemporary design and exhibition technologies including Audio Visual and interactive elements will be used to exhibit and conserve the School’s precious collection, providing a visitor experience that will exemplify and celebrate Collegiate.

A gift in your Will to the School is the most powerful and enduring way to support and shape the future of the next generations of Collegiate girls.

Since 1892 Collegiate has been offering a Christian values-based education providing a firm basis for girls to succeed in their chosen lives. Our alumnae, in many fields and for over 130 years, have proven the worth of that education. The School is committed to ensuring that we sustain these values and principles as we prepare girls for the new opportunities and challenges of a changing world.

Whether large or small, a gift in your Will can have an enduring impact on the lives of young people and provide a lasting benefit for generations to come.
