Gawalgalyung Junior School Scholarships
MLC School is currently accepting applications for the Gawalgalyung Scholarship program. The Gawalgalyung Scholarship is designed to enrol Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls whose financial circumstances would exclude them from attending MLC School on a full fee paying basis.
MLC School has had a long relationship with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In 1942 the House System was adopted at MLC School. The names chosen for the Houses were Aboriginal words; Mooramoora, Leawarra, Churunga and Booralee. The announcement in the school’s magazine ‘Excelsior’ recognised the traditional owners of Australia.
'It is the Aboriginal people who have given us the names for our Houses, so that the tradition which we begin this year has its roots in Australia’s most distant past. They are lovely names, both in sound and meaning given to us by the people whose land Australia really is.' –Excelsior, December 1942
To qualify for the Gawalgalyung Scholarship, applicants must meet all of the following criteria:
- The applicant must be an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person
- Demonstrate an enthusiasm and commitment to an MLC School education
- Parental/family/guardian support
- Agree to the MLC School Conditions of Enrolment
