Applications now open

The Jennifer Haynes Memorial Bursary provides for girls and boys who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend Moreton Bay College or Moreton Bay Boys' College. 

Jennifer Haynes was the Principal of Moreton Bay College from 2006 to 2011 and then Executive Principal of the amalgamated colleges until 2014. She was deeply loved and respected by students, staff, and the community. Jennifer is remembered as a strong advocate for the education of girls and for the development of boys to be gentlemen in the fullest sense of the word. Sadly, Jennifer is no longer with us. However, her legacy lives on in the contribution she has made as an educator and the future educational opportunities she has built through the Bursary.

We are taking applications for one student to commence Year 7 in 2022.
