      Bursaries may be awarded following the completion of a financial statement by the candidate's parents. A special form is provided for this purpose. When awarding bursaries, the committee will always take into consideration each applicant's potential for contributing to the ethos and life of the OLA community.

      The value of a Bursary will be re-assessed annually and may go up or down depending on current family circumstances. Special consideration for Bursary funding will be given to children whose parents are practising Catholics and who, where possible, attend Catholic primary schools. The continuation of a bursary is dependent upon good school reports for effort, participation and behaviour.

      The school will at any time consider a Bursary application in respect of an existing pupil if their future education is jeopardised by unforeseen financial problems. Preference will be given to any pupil who is at a sensitive stage in his / her school career.
