MUSIC, sport and education scholarships have been awarded to young people in the City of Bayswater, recognising their outstanding achievements.

A total of $15,400 was given to a variety of talented applicants, helping them to further their studies in their fields of expertise.

“As has been the case in the past, the standard of scholarship entrants this year was outstanding, which made the job of judging a very difficult task,” Bayswater Mayor Terry Kenyon said.

“The judges on the scholarship award selection committees need to be admired for their dedication, commitment and diligence shown during the extensive interview and audition processes.

“With so many talented students and young people within the City of Bayswater, selecting the award-winners was always going to be a challenge, given their initiative and hard work.

“There was also plenty of behind-the-scenes work from school principals, teachers, festival organisers, private tutors, coaches and community groups.”

Winners of $1200 music scholarships each were Noranda resident Christine Ng (primary), Morley resident Kevin Ho (secondary) and Bayswater resident Jessica Armstrong (open).

Three sports scholarships, worth $1200 each, were awarded to Tom Gatti, of Bayswater, Caitlin Kotula and Amy Cameron, both of Morley.

Embleton resident Lachlan Salter and Maylands resident Rhys Mackean also scored local sports scholarships worth $500 each.

Designed to recognise outstanding academic results, education achievement scholarships of $1200 each were given to Catherine Pinto, of Bayswater, Christopher Vu, of Noranda, and Chloe Hayes and Daniel Ho, both of Morley.

Education assistance scholarships of $1200 also went to Morley resident Jana Nguyen and Bayswater resident Linh Vo to help them further their studies.

“It’s extremely rewarding for the City of Bayswater to be able to who have exceptional ability and potential in their different fields of study,” Bayswater Mayor Terry Kenyon said.

City of Bayswater

The City of Bayswater is a local government area in the inner north-eastern suburbs of the West Australian capital city of Perth, about 9km north-east of Perth's CBD, and includes the suburbs of Bayswater, Beford, Embleton, Maylands, Morley and Noranda and parts of Mount Lawley and Dianella. It covers an area of 32.8 square kilometres and has a population of 55,801.

Originally, the Bayswater Road District was created in 1897 and, in 1961, it became a shire before attaining City status in 1983. The City of Bayswater is divided into four wards and represented by 11 councillors with the Mayor elected from among the councillors.

Recent developments in the City of Bayswater include the opening of the Galleria shopping centre in 1994, on the site of the old Boans building that burnt down in 1986. Morley is now the largest commercial district outside of Perth and Fremantle and further growth is expected.
