Foundation Scholarships

During our Centenary year in 2019 Calrossy established a Foundation to support the provision of opportunities for girls and boys to attend the School, named after some important members of the School community. They recognise significant contributors to the outstanding academic, sporting and cultural traditions of Calrossy Anglican School.

Ruth Munro Scholarship

The Ruth Munro scholarship is named in memory of a most inspirational teacher at Calrossy who taught 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 called, ‘The Book of Ruth’.

This is awarded to applicants who demonstrate the potential to make a significant positive contribution across areas such as in public speaking, debating, drama, English & History, as well as school contribution and engagement and involvement.

Mary England Scholarship (Melville '43)

The Mary England scholarship was established in honour of Mary England  (Melville '43). She loved her time as a Boarder at what was then Tamworth Church of England Girls’ School. After leaving she continued to put her heart and soul into the School she loved. She established the Sydney group of Old Girls and was a devoted supporter of Calrossy up until the time of her passing in 2018. Cross-generational links were promoted and supported by Mrs England. She was ahead of her time and encouraged many alumna to participate in the life of the School beyond their own education, maintaining a strong connection with their ‘alma mater’. The Drawing Room in Calrossy House is named in recognition for the significant contribution of Mrs England.‚Äč
