OBU Scholarships

The OBU provides the Old Boys Scholarship to recognise an applicant's contribution to the Life of the School.  It is a unique scholarship in that it is given directly to one boy as he leaves school to utilise in further developing himself in their first 3 years out of school.   It acknowledges a positive attitude to scholastic endeavours; constructive relationships with peers and staff; involvement in leadership activities; and eager participation in extra-curricular activities and in games.  The scholarship seeks to acknowledge the applicant's support of the School and its aims, and his effort, contribution and involvement, having regard to the applicant's ability and potential.

The OBU also provides the financial support towards the OBU Club Exhibition Prize for Year 11 and Year 12 boys.  These exhibitions are awarded each year by a Committee consisting of the Headmaster and other members of the School staff.
