The Bond University-Brisbane Boys Grammar alliance was strengthened once again this year through Bond’s sponsorship of the annual Grammar Golf Day on August 29.
Bond has been a key supporter of the Golf Day for some years now, adding their valuable assistance to the fundraising efforts that finance the Grammar Golf Bursaries.
It was particularly gratifying this year to catch up with a couple of Brisbane Grammar Old Boys who were flying the Bond flag on the day as part of the four-man team fielded by the university: Tom Hall-Brown is now studying a degree in Property and Sustainable Development at Bond’s brand new state-of-the-art Mirvac School of Sustainable Development and Sam Cochrane is taking advantage of Bond’s fast-track three-semesters-per-year timetable to tackle a double degree in Law and International Relations.
Grammar has enjoyed a long-standing association with Bond University through their select membership of their Collegiate Partnership Program which gives students from Australia’s leading secondary schools access to a range of exclusive opportunities and benefits.
These include the annual Collegiate Scholarship which sees one of our outstanding Year 12 graduates receive a 50% scholarship to study the degree of their choice at Bond.
Through this program, our students are also eligible for a wide range of ancillary scholarships available at Bond, giving them access to an elite educational experience which earned the highest rating of any university in Australia in the recently released 2008 Good Universities Guide.
