R.M. Ansett Trust


Portland Secondary College student Meluda Peart has been rewarded for her continued community involvement and academic achievement, with a scholarship from the R.M. Ansett Trust.Meluda, in year 10, will receive $1500 each year for the next three years - a prize awarded to 10 students in Victoria annually.Her community involvement covers many aspects of her life, including speaking at last year’s Reconciliation Day event, to cultural days and peer support at school. She is also part of this year’s Whitten Project and is involved with two local sporting clubs."The money can go towards a number of things," Meluda said."I can use it to pay for text books or VETiS fees for my hospitality course, and now I can choose to go on school camp or participate in the tertiary tour."The R.M. Ansett Trust was established through Sir Reginald Ansett’s will in which he expressed his wish that the income from his charitable trust be used to assist children to ‘take their place in life’.The trust set up the public school scholarships to encourage academically promising students in years 10 to 12 to complete their secondary education.


Year 10 student Meluda Peart is grateful for her three-year scholarship from the R.M. Ansett Trust.
