Drs. Kenneth and Cheryl Cheung Travel Grant / Scholarship Programme 2014

Having spent a total of ten years in Wagga Drs Ken and Cheryl Cheung have realised that high school students could benefit from increased exposure to the various educational program available in capital cities. Students in regional and rural areas often miss the educational opportunities accessed by their counterparts in larger city areas. Therefore, the Drs. Kenneth and Cheryl Cheung Travel Grant/Scholarship Foundation has been set up to provide some financial assistance to high school students to attend study workshops, school-sanctioned educational activities, agricultural shows, or even attend a performing arts workshop.

In 2014 the grant/scholarship will be piloted in four high schools.This is Phase 1 of our trial to support local high school students so that it will be easier for them to access capital cities to learn and experience - bridging the city-rural divide and providing regional and rural students added assistance for them to achieve a learning outcome that they deserve.

The Travel Grant/Scholarship Programme is administered by three members of the community, independent of the fund sponsors:

Anthony Chan, a university lecturer by profession has many years of experience in education in Australia and abroad. His involvement with school children and the community is well known in the Wagga area.

Colin Parker, is a retired education management professional. His last position was the Regional Director (Riverina) of the Department of Education and Communities. His years of experience with education in this district will be invaluable.

Julie Alt, a retired mathematics head teacher in Wagga who has many years of teaching and school experience. All three will take on this task pro bono (without charge for service).
