The All-rounder Scholarship is offered to students going into Year 7 and Year 11 in accordance with Inaburra’s values: faith, knowledge, love, excellence, individual and community.  This is in recognition that it is not just about ‘what’ you do, but also ‘how’ you do it, which is reflective of the ‘Inaburra way’.

It is awarded to students who are able to demonstrate an outstanding level of performance academically, demonstrating a commitment to study and high levels of involvement across three of the six categories listed below within a school or other context:

  • Leadership;
