In addition to the Academic, Music & All Rounder Scholarships offered in Years 5 & 6 (See Academic, Music & All Rounder Scholarships Pages), PLC Armidale offers a very special opportunity for a Kindergarten student.

Victoria Palmer Scholarship

The Victoria Palmer Scholarship is offered in memory of Victoria Palmer, a PLC Armidale Kindergarten student who attended Pre-Kinder and a few days of Kindergarten.

Victoria was a bright, curious, outgoing little girl, who loved school, was energetic and fun loving and approached learning with curiosity and determination.

She passed away in 2008 from the sudden effects of a brain stem tumour. This Scholarship has been donated in her memory.
