Shenton College DEC Unleashed!

Congratulations to three of our Year 9/10 Deaf students who won the National $20 Boss Unleashed Awards!

Hannah Green, Kelly Tran and Tasha Moore-Grant were the worthy winners who were flown to Melbourne for the finals and to accept the award. These awards support students who design a business, design and make products and then donate the profits to charity. The emphasis is on being positive, and making a social, economic or environmental contribution to the world. The girls designed and developed dog-friendly biscuits and scarves and all the proceeds of their entrepreneurial efforts were then donated to the Shenton Park Dog’s Refuge.

Jasmine wins a Tuckwell

Jasmine Pearson is the first Shenton College student to win a Tuckwell Scholarship. This prestigious award, valued at $125,000, will enable her to study for up to five years full time at the Australian National University in Canberra.

There were only three students in WA included in the national selection of 25 Tuckwell Scholarship winners. The Tuckwell Scholarship program, established seven years ago, is renowned for its generosity, allowing students to fully focus on their studies rather than trying to make ends meet. It is regarded as the pinnacle of university scholarships in Australia.

Jasmine said the scholarship would enable her to bring to fruition her dream of moving east to study, and she plans to pursue studies in Health Science and Anthropology with a view to becoming involved in public health, particularly Indigenous health.
