Giving copy

As students enter the doors of Newcastle Grammar School, they are enriched by a quality educational experience that develops the whole child and prepares them for the complexities of the future.

The School has a history of giving generously to assist families and support students to obtain a life-changing quality education. Now is the time to formalise this process to impact the lives of current and future students — to provide the opportunity for more students to access the transformational tools, resources, programs and wellbeing support that distinguishes NGS as the leading school in the region. The power of collective community giving can truly create a legacy. The joy of seeing the positive impact your contribution makes now and for future generations of NGS students is tangible.

NGS is continuing to grow the Scholarship Fund and Building Fund, to impact NGS students for generations to come.

Indigenous Scholarship - The Murray / Wotton Bursary

The Murray/Wotton Bursary will be awarded to an Indigenous student who demonstrates a commitment to their academic studies and a commitment to the broader School community. This bursary is named after Stewart Murray and the Reverend Roy Wotton who both served in the Australian Army in World War II. Stewart Murray, a young Indigenous soldier, was a remarkable servant-hearted man. Murray assisted the Reverend Wotton with burial services during the war and then went on to form an Aboriginal tradesmen’s company, became Aboriginal father of the Year in 1969, became a Justice of the Peace and was honoured with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM). The friendship between the men lasted well after the war and became a legacy of connection between their families.

This bursary was first proposed by the Reverend Roy Wotton’s daughter, Judith, in memory of this special friendship and in the hope that this living memorial reminds us of the need for connection and the ‘building of bridges’ with our first nations peoples. We need your help to build this fund to make Judith's dream become a reality.

Building Fund - Cool the School

The NGS Cool the School campaign involves raising funds for the supply and installation of air-conditioning to our two major function areas – the Sandi Warren Performance Centre at Park Campus and the Horbury Hunt Hall at Hill Campus. Both spaces are used regularly by students, staff, parents and visitors for examinations, learning, performances, assemblies and the broader Newcastle community.

Air conditioning these spaces will allow for greater learning and comfort for all users.

School fees and government grants alone do not provide for the ongoing advancement of Newcastle Grammar School, therefore we rely on the generosity of our community to achieve the School’s broader educational aspirations and vision.

Our goal for this project is $400,000. Can you help us reach our Cool the School target to benefit students now and into the future? Every gift, regardless of size, will help shape the future of NGS.

By giving to Newcastle Grammar School’s Philanthropic Funds, you are contributing to a culture of stewardship, to help the School carry out its mission now and into the future. Together, we are creating a future for every NGS student.

If you would like to contribute to any of the projects mentioned here, please contact the Philanthropy team at or the NGS Accounts Department on 02 4929 5811.
