Hale School Indigenous Programme Success

Hale School Indigenous Programme Success

Hale School and St Mary’s Indigenous scholarship students from Years 10 to 12 recently met staff from The University of Melbourne and Trinity College to hear about potential study opportunities.

Old Haleian Terrell Cheedy (2014-16) now in his third year of his Bachelor of Science degree at The University of Melbourne, inspired the audience with the story of his academic journey from Broome to Hale then onto University.

Since it's inception in 1997, the Indigenous scholarship programme has been an immense success and now has over 70 graduates. Co-founded by Deputy Headmaster David Bean, the aim of the programme has always been to assist Indigenous boys and to develop a better understanding between the non-indigenous members of our community. There have now been five Hale School Indigenous scholarship students who have gone on to also hold scholarships at Trinity College and The University of Melbourne: Terrell Cheedy; Dr Ryan Atkinson (1998-02) now a GP in Broome; Clinton Benjamin (2001-05) who after completing his Bachelor of Arts is in the final year of law;  Steven Hanning (2006-07) and Donny Imberlong (2008-12) both who completed their Bachelor of Arts.
