Help shape the future of St Margaret's

As we head towards our 180th anniversary in 2026 we are eager to grow our financial strength and enable as many girls as possible to experience and benefit from a St Margaret’s education. Times are tough and we yearn to be financially stronger to attract talented individuals so they can flourish long into the future. Can you help?

The demand for bursaries has been increasing during these uncertain economic times. With your support we could extend our support to more girls from our community.

We are not an affluent school and we have no endowment fund to provide bursaries or to develop our campus. We are financially secure but yearn to be stronger.

“I was fortunate to have been a recipient of St Margaret's bursary during my final 2 years of secondary school. The opportunities that the bursary granted me have been stepping stones to my career progression and achievements. I will always be grateful to the donors of these bursaries.”
