Endeavour

Up to four scholarships are awarded each year to prospective students of Maori and/or Pasifika heritage who are joining us in Year 7. These scholarships provide support right through her school years.

Our current head girl, Tiana Willis-Baker, is a proud Endeavour Scholarship recipient and embodies the spirit of the Endeavour programme. She has added richness to life at St Cuthbert’s, through sharing her Samoan and Tokelauan cultural heritage and insights with the students, teachers and those who will follow in her footsteps. We also offer a number of other St Cuthbert’s scholarships.
