Bursaries

The Moreton Bay Colleges’ Foundation offers several Bursaries based on financial need to students who are excelling and would not otherwise be able to enrol and avail themselves of the opportunities presented, to attend our Colleges.  

JENNIFER HAYNES BURSARY
QUENTIN BRYCE BURSARY

JENNIFER HAYNES BURSARY

The Jennifer Haynes Memorial Bursary provides for girls and boys who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend Moreton Bay College or Moreton Bay Boys' College. 

Jennifer Haynes was the Principal of Moreton Bay College from 2006 to 2011 and then Executive Principal of the amalgamated colleges until 2014. She was deeply loved and respected by students, staff and the community. Jennifer is remembered as a strong advocate for the education of girls and for the development of boys to be gentlemen in the fullest sense of the word. Sadly, Jennifer is no longer with us. However, her legacy lives on in the contribution she has made as an educator and the future educational opportunities she has built through the Bursary. 

Currently there are no places available for this Bursary.

QUENTIN BRYCE BURSARY

The Quentin Bryce Bursary provides girls from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, who demonstrate potential to achieve high academic success, the opportunity of a secondary school education at Moreton Bay College.

The Bursary fund is named in honour of Dame Quentin Bryce AD, CVO, former Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia and past student of Moreton Bay College.
