The Bindyi Club has always regarded the awarding of scholarships and awards to students of the three campuses of Dubbo College to be one of its key platforms. Accordingly, we ask all ex-students to consider adding a donation to the Scholarship Fund when they renew their memberships each year.
In 2015, the Executive Committee agreed to a streamlined reorganisation of the Awards, removing those previously given to Year 8 Students, but increasing the value of those given to Year 10 and 12 students.
The Awards are:
Rawdon Middleton Awards ‚Äì given to 2 students from Year 10 in each of the junior campuses.
Each prize is $250 and a certificate from the Bindyi Club which tells the story of Rawdon Middleton‚Äôs heroic death
Bindyi Club Service Award for School Service‚Äì given to 2 students in Year 12 of the Senior Campus
Each prize is $250 and a certificate from the Bindyi Club about Rawdon Middleton.
Frank Heather Award for a Student leaving Year 12 to attend CSU Dubbo campus
This prize is $1000. The winner is asked to write an initial letter to the BIndyi Club about their University aspiratons, and a follow up letter at the end of the year
The Prize is named after the founder and first secretary of the Bindyi Club.
