Ukraine Bursary Fund
St. Columba’s College, like all schools, are having to play their part in welcoming Ukrainian refugees into their communities. We do not have the capacity to offer a large number of places, but we have offered places to three Ukrainian pupils to come here as boarders since last September; a boy in Form I and a girl in Form II. Additionally, we welcomed a young Ukrainian Maths teacher to the Common Room for this academic year.
The Ukraine Bursary Fund is designed to assist with pupil fees but, for the most part, for other expenses such as uniform, travel and even, if it should prove necessary, counselling.
I am very pleased by how these young people have settled into College routines and by what they bring to our school community. We know that we are blessed to have what we have and I hope that we can play our part in making life considerably more hopeful for these wonderful children and our member of Staff.
