It’s thanks to the support of the community: past and current parents, Old Collegians and their families, and many others who appreciate the value of a King’s College education that we can continue to do so. A gift to any one of these projects is an investment in our students – and creates a brighter future.
Warne Rowllings Memorial Scholarship
The Warne Rowllings Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Warne Rowllings (Selwyn/ Major, 1956–60) by his family. This scholarship enables a student to continue their education at King’s if for some reason their family can no longer afford fees due to genuine, unexpected financial hardship. Through this scholarship we can help those families, providing continuity of education at the College for their children.
Warne participated enthusiastically in all aspects of King’s. During his time at the College financial pressure meant he faced the prospect of leaving the College. However, Warne was able to continue his education through the financial generosity of the school at the time.
This scholarship is fully funded to offer one scholarship, but the College would gratefully welcome additional support to grow this fund to support further students who may require assistance.
Helping Hand Fund
This fund is to assist those students who do not have the financial means to participate in the College’s academic, cultural or sporting trips without special assistance. As one family commented, “It was not easy to ask for financial help, but when we needed it, it was given in a way that has not left us feeling beholden or humiliated, just grateful – thank you”.Donate Now
