Green School New Zealand is excited to announce details surrounding its scholarship programme, which will be available to support local learners from the beginning of the 2021 school year. 

Two, three-year scholarship opportunities are now open for applications. Green School founder, Rachel Perrett, said although the scholarship programme had been somewhat delayed due to Covid-19, it was exciting to finally be able to put these two scholarship opportunities out specifically for the local community.

“These scholarships are just the beginning of what we hope to offer as Green School grows and develops. It’s still early days for us, but our dream is that this way of learning will continue to gain momentum and eventually be woven into traditional curriculum. The more learners and families we can expose to this learning, the more chance we have of making that happen.”  

The first of the three-year scholarships is being supported by one of the school’s international families, and is open to any learner between years 1-11.

The second scholarship, called the Future Innovator Scholarship, is being supported by a local business and is open to learners who will be entering year 11, in February 2021.

Green School CEO, Chris Edwards, said both scholarships had been generously supported by people from within the local community, with a specific purpose in mind.

“At the heart of these scholarships is the desire to make a difference in the life of children who may not otherwise be able to attend Green School.” 

The scholarships are designed to support local learners, therefore, applicants and their guardians must also be living within 35km of the school campus.

Scholarship applications are due to close on Friday 6 November. For more information about the nature and criteria of the Green School Scholarship Programme, please click here.
