TAFE Illawarra baking student Morgan Clemenston has received a Student Education Bursary from St George Community Housing for the third time in recognition of her academic achievements while attending TAFE Illawarra.
Morgan was awarded the bursary in recognition of her academic achievements at TAFE throughout her three years of study.
“I completed two baking courses and am now undertaking Certificate IV in Business Management. With the help of this wonderful initiative I have been able to purchase my tools, textbooks and pay for my fees at TAFE Illawara,” Morgan said.
St George Community Housing (SGCH) introduced the bursary scheme in 2005 as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations. The scheme is designed to assist tenants by easing the financial burden of educating their children or themselves.
“St George Community Housing has a great focus on their tenants and their ability to make a life for themselves and to create a positive future that they may not have thought was available to them,” Morgan said.
TAFE Illawarra baking teacher John Baker said he was pleased Morgan’s hard work has been recognised
“We are really proud of Morgan’s achievements and in particular her success in the recent Baking Industry Association awards night where she won first place in the Apprentice Pastry Cook section,” John said.
Bursaries are available for primary, secondary and tertiary students and range from $400 to $1200 each year. Funds may be used to purchase items or services that help students with their studies, such as computers, software, books, technology and tuition.
