Scholarship Fund


Since 1962, Daramalan College has been providing financial assistance to eligible families whose situation would exclude them from giving their child an MSC education.

The Daramalan College scholarship fund was established in 2013 and aims to offer scholarships to several students each year with the long term goal of supporting scholarship recipients through a self-sustaining fund

Fundraising activities

The Daramalan College Board oversees the administration of the Scholarship Fund through the Scholarship Fund Committee. This committee manages and administers the scholarship fund by supporting activities and initiatives that raise funds or encourage donations or in-kind support.

You can help in the following ways:

  • Donations from individuals, families, businesses or groups such as graduating classes may be in the form of one-off or ongoing donations. Bequests and endowments named after your family provide a gift for the future.
  • Attend our fundraising events
  • Advertise your business in the Daramalan College Online Business Directory. If you own a business, promote your products and services to the Daramalan Family within the online Business Directory.
  • Shop at The Athletes Foot. If you are buying school or sports shoes, consider looking at what the Athlete’s Foot has to offer, as they offer a percentage from all sales associated with Daramalan College to our Scholarship Fund. Simply mention that you are associated with Daramalan and they will note this in their records. In 2016, we raised $1,500 from this partnership.

Upcoming Events

No bookings are necessary; just come along and have look at how the school has changed since you were last here. Or not changed as the case may be. We will be open from 1.30pm – 4.00pm and this coincides with the annual Art Expo. So it’s a win/win day all round. A wander around the school followed by some of the best student artworks you are ever likely to see.
