Philanthropy is an integral part of our St Hilda's culture. Much that our students enjoy today is the result of the foresight and generosity of previous generations.
St Hilda’s girls benefit from an education that opens their eyes to opportunities, teaches them respect and creates an incredible sense of self-belief. But not every girl has this opportunity. This year in particular, there are some families that will have to make some tough decisions when it comes to their daughter’s education.
Due to the increasingly difficult economic environment, the School chose to reduce fees for families this term to ensure that we provide them financial relief. However, this decision will have an effect on the School’s ability to provide a strong scholarship program.
In our first year as participants in the Madalah Indigenous Scholarship program, we are keen to ensure that we provide opportunities to Aboriginal girls from regional and remote Western Australia. This program has also been affected by the current situation, which now limits our ability to fund the gap that parents are required to pay.
A donation of any size will make a difference to a child’s life, opening up opportunities and offering them continuity of education.

“During these uncertain times, and with many families experiencing unexpected financial difficulty with no clear end date, I feel that donating back to the School at this point in time could make a significant difference to many girls’ lives and allow them to continue experiencing, with certainty, the wonderful foundation a St Hilda’s education provides for them now and in the future. “
