Every gift made, no matter how large or small, has a direct impact on our current and future students. Thank you to all who have generously supported the College in 2019. With your support we have already raised over $64,000 this year!!

Our Annual Giving Priorities for 2019 are…
Means-Tested Financial Scholarships
St Andrew’s aim is to provide more students the otherwise unreachable opportunity of becoming part of the St Andrew’s community, irrespective of their cultural, geographic or socio-economic backgrounds. Currently however, our funds cannot keep pace with the ever-increasing demand for financial assistance amongst our students and so we need you to join us to achieve this.
This year we ask for your support towards the scholarship funds that reflect the students most affected by financial barriers:
- Rural and Regional Scholarships
- Government Schools Scholarships
- Indigenous Scholarships
“I think the scholarships are not only important for the recipients themselves to enable them to achieve things otherwise unable, but are also highly beneficial for the wider college community… the opportunity that college provided me was incredible and I hope that I can someday contribute to helping a similar student have the same support.”
– Illie Hewitt (Fr 2015), Rural & Regional Scholarship Recipient 2016-2018
Thyne Reid Link Development
With over 300 students residing at St Andrew’s College, the demand for residencies exceeds the College’s capacity, meaning many outstanding young women and men miss out on the opportunity to join the St Andrew’s community. To enable us to offer more places to deserving students, we are currently undertaking the largest single expansion since the College’s inception.
The Thyne Reid Link Development began construction in November 2018 and will incorporate approximately 85 new single and ensuite bedrooms, as well as 4 and 5 bedroom apartments. Recognising and believing in the importance of college life, the development will also include tutorial rooms, music rehearsal rooms, a gym and social common areas, providing students with the spaces to develop into well-rounded individuals that will shape the future.
Your generosity will directly add your legacy to this building and contribute to the growth of the College and its students, so we hope you will join us and support one of the below options:
- Thyne Reid Link Development Fund
- Thyne Reid Gym & Equipment
- Thyne Reid Music Room & Equipment
- Thyne Reid Social Common Room
“This new building development is extremely exciting. The upgrade in facilities is much needed and the opportunity to allow for a larger intake to match our enormous demand is very promising.”
– Jack Mackenzie-Wood (Fr 2016), Senior Student 2019
