Foundation Scholarship Applications for 2023 close April 23, 2022.

Ruth Munro Scholarship

The Ruth Munro scholarship is named in memory of a most inspirational teacher at Calrossy for over 40 years. Ruth impacted hugely on the lives of generations of Calrossy students teaching English, Ancient History and Latin. She was one of those ‘one in a million individuals who made a difference to the lives of generations of students, inspiring a love of language and the joy of learning. One alumni wrote of Miss Munro, “She touched my heart, fed my soul and challenged my intellect. When I left Calrossy she made me feel special in a way that I will never forget. If only I could be as special and magnificent a woman as Ruth Munro, I would be humbled.” Miss Munro’s impact is also remembered through a volume of HER poetry published posthumously, ‘The Book of Ruth’.
