The Financial Hardship Bursary is available to all students enrolled in Kindergarten through to Year 12 and currently attending the College. Parents may apply for the Financial Hardship Bursary where there is a significant change in their circumstances (for example, a reduction in earnings or a redundancy) which could not reasonably have been foreseen at the time of entry into the College. When considering such applications, account will also be taken of the pupil’s contribution to the life of the College.
Bursary recipients receive a 50% discount on tuition fees and families are asked to contribute the other 50%. The bursary does not cover subject levies and additional charges such as swimming, excursions, camps and levies. The bursary is awarded for a period of one (1) academic year, unless the circumstances change.
To apply, families are required to fill in the Application for a Financial Hardship Bursary form and provide all necessary supporting documentation. Due to the confidential nature of information required, it is compulsory for bursary applications to be emailed to Bursaries@ljbc.wa.edu.au with all supporting documentation included. This is to avoid sensitive information potentially going missing in the mail.
There are a limited number of bursaries available and the decision of the Panel, in association with the College Principal regarding the awarding of a bursary, is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
