Thank You


Dear Friends,

Your Support is already transforming lives

The Foundation’s goal of a $1.75 million endowment fund was always ambitious, but from the wide-ranging generosity of our donors and supporters, and ARTBOURNE exhibition fundraising, so far an incredible $1.45 million has been donated or pledged. THANK YOU for your generosity and support. 

Some of you who have supported the Foundation, have shared that your motivation for giving has been the extraordinary difference they have observed in boys receiving a scholarship. Moreover, many of you are happy to continue your support over time, because you appreciate the need for the certainty of funds for the future of the scholarship programme. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT.

We have updated our scholarship video featuring several former scholars :

We also wish to share with you news on two specific scholarships. Former Dux of 1943, Sir John Todd’s patronage has been recognised in a scholarship in his name to be awarded this year, for 2017.

Moreover, we are delighted to announce – The Tim Jamieson Memorial Scholarship. Tim attended Wellesley for Years 7 and 8 in 1991-1992, years his parents felt were the most important in his schooling. He flourished in Wellesley’s positive, encouraging atmosphere, and developed a love for the outdoors which later became his passion, inspiring him to pursue a career in Outdoor Education. In 2002, whilst undertaking kayaking training, Tim tragically died, at only 21.

In remembrance of Tim, and due to his great love for Wellesley, his mother has donated a scholarship to be awarded for the first time in 2017. This opportunity, like all scholarships offered at Wellesley, has the potential to be transformational to boys and their families, and brings wonderful diversity to our school.

We are extremely grateful for the recognition by these donors that a Wellesley education through scholarship is deeply valued. Thank you. With the Campaign still underway, several fundraising activities are planned for our Wellesley community. 

The next which will be ARTBOURNE residency and student exhibition - Thursday September 14 from 6.30pm. At this exhibition our 2017 artist in residence’s artworks will be for sale. We encourage Wellesley families and the wider community to view and purchase these works, with partial proceeds of any artworks sold going to the Promising Futures for Boys’ endowment fund.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you for making a difference
