2022 Scholarship success stories

A number of our students have been offered scholarships towards the costs of their tertiary education in 2022. Check out the complete list [PDF 129 KB].


The College and the Mission College Hamilton Trust Board invite applications for the 2020 Outward Bound Scholarship. The purpose of the scholarship is to assist Sacred Heart Girls’ College students, who are up and coming leaders, to further develop their skills in leadership. Applicants will have demonstrated the potential to lead in our College Community. However, they may not yet have had the opportunity to excel in this area of personal development and, given this opportunity, would benefit the wider community of Sacred Heart Girls’ College.

Provision of the Scholarship demonstrates the Mission College Hamilton Trust Board’s ongoing commitment to provide educational opportunities for our students and to bring life to the school’s Vision Statement – “To empower young women to strive for personal excellence and become leaders of the future”.

The scholarship provides opportunities for personal awareness and development, and mental and social challenge. It enables students to develop self-reliance, empathy for others, to examine their beliefs and values, and provide skills as members of a team.


The student must:

  • Be enrolled and attend Sacred Heart Girls’ College, Hamilton at the time of application and when the course takes place.
  • Have maintained a satisfactory level of attendance.
  • Be of the age required for the course as stipulated by Outward Bound. (16-18 years at the time of application and at the commencement of the course).

Applications are open now. Closing date for applications is Term 3, Week 8, Monday 9th September, 2019.

Outward Bound Course Dates: Monday 6th to Sunday 26th January, 2020.
