Scholarships and awards

The Jannali High School values students working hard to achieve their personal best across all areas of school life.  As a comprehensive high school we cater for all ability levels and learning styles.  We also believe that the Higher School Certificate is the culmination of 13 years of education. For students to be successful in their learning we expect that they uphold our CARE values and expectations in all of their dealings with staff and peers.  Cooperate, Achieve, Respect and Engage can be demonstrated in a range of ways and in a variety of situations across the school.

School-Based Scholarships
