FOR the third consecutive year, Ariston Christian School will be making 20 academic bursaries available to economically disadvantaged pupils for 2018.
The bursaries are available to pupils from grades R to 7 and recipients are required to be academically deserving.
Launched in an effort to assist struggling community members, the school has, to date, sponsored 35 children from economically deprived backgrounds.
“There is a great need to give back to the community and this is one of the ways Ariston prides itself on doing so,” said one of the founding directors of the school, Peter Roumeliotis.
There is no deadline for applications although there is limited space as only 20 bursaries are available. Parents are encouraged to visit the school in order to apply on behalf of their children.
The school will also be having an open day on November 17 at their new premises at 52 Belgravia Crescent, where parents can apply for these bursaries.
“As of next year, our play school will be situated at the new premises in Belgravia Crescent and we are very excited for this new chapter,” Roumeliotis said.
“The open day is really a chance for parents to view our new facility and ask any questions they may have. There will also be fun activities throughout the day for the children and their parents.”
For anyone interested in applying for the bursaries or for more information about the school, contact the school at firstname.lastname@example.org or on (043)722-1767.
