Melbourne Grammar School is committed to creating an environment where Indigenous issues are understood, discussed and students are actively involved in increasing awareness and appreciation for Indigenous Australia within the Grammar community.
Since 1998, Melbourne Grammar School’s Reconciliation Committee has established meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities, institutions and individuals to assist students in exploring Indigenous culture as a means to understanding their own history and identity as Australians.
Education is essentially about transformation and about providing a vision for our students that is bigger than they are. With this in mind, the provision of an Indigenous Bursary as part of our commitment to Reconciliation, seeks to grant young Indigenous men a glimpse at the most powerful vision of all. That overriding vision lies within each and every one of them.
As a leader in the area of boys education, and as one of the biggest boarding schools in the Victoria, Melbourne Grammar School is well placed to prepare Indigenous students from all over Australia for the rigours of tertiary study and is thus poised to make a real and lasting contribution to the next generation of Indigenous leaders.
Our aims are simple:
- To bridge the educational gap
- To offer opportunities and pathways
- To promote social justice
- To address the unfinished business of Reconciliation
