“As a scholar, I am able to learn and grow with happiness and peace of mind. Neither my parents nor I need to be anxious about monetary matters for education and I am able to be wholeheartedly involved in the enrichment of my mind, body and soul whilst utilising all the facilities and opportunities provided at Hills. It is a real honour to represent the School as a scholar.” Year 12 Academic Scholar.
