Guildford Indigenous Educational Scholarship Trust
Indigenous Scholarship Fund
Guildford Grammar School has a long history of providing educational opportunities for Indigenous students. Since the School's foundation, over 200 Indigenous students have attended the School, dating back to our first Indigenous student, Charlie Burns, who attended from 1905 -1909.
Charlie Burns left the School in 1909 to join the Australian Army and fight overseas. Since then, many notable Indigenous Old Guildfordians have enjoyed outstanding success in their sporting and professional careers.
The School is committed to the promotion of positive and respectful relationships for all. Our Reconciliation Action Plan aims to further our partnership and acknowledgment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We work closely with Indigenous families and elders to constantly grow our shared understanding.
