The Association is a wonderful way to stay in contact with St Peter’s Woodlands Grammar School, Woodlands Church of England Girls Grammar School and St Peter’s Glenelg Anglican Grammar School and especially to maintain the friendships that you have made through your involvement with your school.

The Association provides unity and fellowship between all students, staff and families, scholarships to students and preserves articles and records for all schools.

Elaine Balfour-Ogilvy Scholarship

The Elaine Balfour Ogilvy Scholarship is for girls who are currently in Year 11, who attend an Anglican School (including interstate) and whose mother, grandmother or great-grandmother attended Woodlands Girls’ Grammar School.

It was created by the Woodlands Old Scholars in honour of an old scholar, one of the Australian Army nurses who died in the horror of war after the fall of Singapore.

The Scholarship is awarded and funded by the St Peter’s Woodlands Old Scholars’ Association. Old Scholars may add to the fund at any time and the amount given has historically been around $1500, to be paid directly to the scholarship recipient’s school as a subsidy to her Year 12 school fees. Holders of full scholarships to their current school are therefore not eligible.

Qualification: The candidate is required to send a letter of introduction and a copy of her CV for a panel of three to evaluate. There is then a short interview during which the candidate may show certificates, photos of awards and any other portable items to substantiate her CV and which she thinks may enhance her chances of winning the award. The written presentation is assessed as well as the girl’s demeanour, achievements and enthusiasm.

Applications should be emailed to:

2022 Scholarship applications close on 29 July 2022.
The interviews will be conducted at St Peter’s Woodlands, during Term 3, 2022.

You are welcome to contact Paul Mesecke, School Community Coordinator with any questions.
