The Nicola and Kenneth Bursaries is in memory of two wonderful Island School students who tragically died over 30 years ago. Each year since then, with the support of their families the Island School community has raised money to help financially challenged children. Each individual gets a bursary, of $3,000 which goes a long way, giving them the support to continue their education, to buy the books and materials or support their living costs.
One student said, “I come from a poor family and my parents can just earn enough to keep the wolf from the door. I did not have a chance to join any extra-curricular activities. After receiving the grant, I can join different activities to widen my horizons. I can also buy more learning materials. It helps me to prepare for exams effectively.”
