Abstract

On the 13 April 2005 the provincial of the Pallottines, Father Ray Hevern along with Father Michael McMahon SAC and Father Kevin McKelson SAC presented two of Notre Dame’s Broome Campus indigenous students with Pallottine Scholarships.

Scholarship recipients Clare Stack and Vanessa Gregory, who are both fourth year education students, were presented with the scholarships during a ceremony held in Graduation Square attended by staff and students from the University, representatives of the Diocese and family members.

The Pallottine Scholarship was developed in the 1990’s to encourage positive interaction between indigenous and non-indigenous people. The scholarships assist in the payment of tuition fees of Aboriginal people engaged in post secondary studies.

Executive Director of the Broome Campus Mr Gavin Greaves said, “We look forward to continuing our relationship with the Pallottine community and will support them in the coordination and promotion of their generous scholarship program”.
