Founders’ Award cash handed to Neale-Wade Community College students

STUDENTS from Neale-Wade Community College have been handed cash to help them take part in an educational trip to Borneo.

John Phythian, chairman of the March Grammar and Neale-Wade Former Students’ Association, presented �1,000 worth of grants to the winners of the Founders’ Award last week.

He said: “There were two awards given to students for a trip to Borneo and two awards given to help students buy musical instruments.

“They applied for the grant before going through an interview process. We were very impressed with the applications this year and the students themselves.

“One of the previous recipients of this award was Louise Hazel, who has now been selected for the Olympics. She got a grant when she was at Neale-Wade to help with her training at the time
