Recently past student, Elly Burling, was awarded a highly coveted New Colombo Plan Scholarship. This is a highly competitive scholarship, with the Australian Government receiving thousands of applications each year.

Elly travelled to Bangalore, India to work with the High Performance Coaching staff at the Padukone-Dravid Centre for Sports Excellence. As the name suggests, two of India’s greatest athletes are the driving force behind a high performance sports centre that all of India hopes will deliver the country a wave of international sporting superstars.

A message from QUT (Queensland University of Technology)
“It would be remiss of me to not say congratulations to the academic staff and wider community of St Mary’s, as evidenced by Elly, you are producing a body of highly successful, adventurous and hardworking alumni. Well done. I look forward to working with more St Mary’s graduates in the future”, Lee Wharton PhD, QUT.
