The purpose of the Trust is to administer the investments and trusts enabled by the generous contributions, gifts or bequeaths from our community. These donations are a significant support for students in our school, recognising a range of needs and success from our student community.
The CHS Educational Trust awards scholarships and support for the following:
- Senior Prizegiving and Year 13 students who are going on to tertiary study
- CHS Sports Awards, Cultural Awards, Senior Prizegiving and the Ngaa Poutiaki Celebration Evening
- School blazers worn by our House Prefects
- Special scholarships and trusts recognising success and providing financial support to CHS students.
Specifically the CHS Educational Trust meets twice per annum to recognise student for the following awards.
In Term 1, awards from the Trust are given out to a senior gifted and talented, sporting and a senior gifted academic student. Ritchie Pickett Scholarship is awarded to a talented music student who wishes to continue their music studies. Colin McHarg Family Trust Award is for a senior student who may not be the top academic or sporting student but who contributes to the fabric of CHS and the greater Cambridge community.
In Term 3, students are invited to apply for CHS Educational Trust Scholarships (including Tom & Rose Milnes Award) and also the Maaori Student Scholarship.
There is also financial assistance for students available throughout the year - please contact the CHS Board Secretary for more information.
