Farrer foundation

The Farrer School Foundation Inc was formed in 2018 for the purpose of promoting education at FMAHS through advancing opportunities for curricular and extra curricular activities at the school. The Foundation will work with the school, the Farrer Old Boys and the Farrer PT&F to improve facilities and offer scholarships and bursaries at FMAHS.

The Farrer School Foundation Inc. is registered under the Associations Incorporations Act (NSW) 2009.

    establishing a School Building Fund
    establishing a School Rural Hostel Building Fund
  • fund raising through the community including past students, parents, families and friends and through the wider community, in particular the agriculture industry.
  • seeking bequests to assist project developments at Farrer MAHS
    managing Foundation invested funds to optimise long term growth and security. 

Farrer foundation scholarships and bursaries fund

There are a range of scholarships to be offered at Farrer. We are targeting a range of students including those with talents and those facing disadvantage or hardship.

Our scholarships will focus on academic, agriculture, the arts and sport. There are two types of scholarship structure.

Money in - Money Out

For example:

The Stoker Family Music Scholarship ($500) is offered to two students each year.

Money in - Interest Out:

For example:

Bill Cornish Agriculture Scholarship for rural students. The amount of the scholarship depends on the interest earned on the principal. This type of scholarship can involve a large initial sum or involve accumulated annual donations over a period of years. 

The scholarship name will be determined by the donor.

Our bursaries will assist isolated and indigenous students. The Foundation will also help fund bursaries to assist deserving students/boarders whose family’s financial or personal situation or other unforeseen events would otherwise prevent them from attending Farrer. 

Farrer foundation school building fund

The School Building Fund will be used to improve existing facilities and provide new ones not funded by the government.

The School Building Fund was established to provide for the acquisition of resources

One of the Foundation’s major projects under consideration is the construction of a School Hall. This facility will comprise an auditorium capable of accommodating the whole school community for events such as Speech Day. It could include a stage for major productions, mezzanine seating, rehearsal spaces, meeting rooms, examination spaces and specialist rooms for PE. The facility would also have the capacity to cater for a variety of indoor sports.
