Kindlehill offers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scholarships to students for the period of their schooling at Kindlehill.

The scholarships are offered in the spirit of enrichment of the education provided to all children and young people at Kindlehill. The scholarships bring richness to the way the curriculum is delivered as well as to the life of the community around the school.

At Kindlehill we believe it is our responsibility to bridge the gap of inequality experienced by our First Nations People.

We hope to maintain and deepen our connection with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in the Blue Mountains in various ways, including bringing the cultural and artistic expertise of the community into our learning environment.

Scholarships are offered annually with the closing date in September/October of each year, for students starting in the next school year. A place can only be offered in classes where there is space.

Scholarships do not extend to playgroup or after school care; full payment towards these services is required by families on the scholarship programme.

Please contact the Office on (02) 4747 4402.

Acknowledgement of Country by Jonathan Hill

Today we stand in footsteps millennia old

May we acknowledge the traditional owners who whose cultures and customs have nurtured,

and continue to nurture this land,

since men and women awoke from the great dream.

We honour the presence of these ancestors

who reside in the imagination of this land

and whose irrepressible spirituality

flows through all creation.

Jonathan Hill is an Aboriginal poet living in NSW, Australia.
