The Hayley Byrne Memorial Scholarship is our highest award at $20,000 per year for two years. Hayley Byrne was an inspirational teacher and leader at our school. She was passionate about the IB Programme, giving students opportunities to learn and develop in their academic studies, and growing as internationally minded young people. Hayley challenged and supported all students to be ambitious, to become critical thinkers, to stand up for justice and for those in need. She enabled students to graduate with confidence, determination, and the knowledge that they can make a positive difference in the world. This scholarship is dedicated in loving memory of Hayley Byrne.
