  3. If your child meets the Selection Criteria as outlined on your Expression of Interest form, they will be requested to sit an academic test (Edutest)**.
  4. Final interview with the Principal, who at their discretion, will make the final decision to offer a General Excellence Scholarship.

* CVs, reports, newspaper clippings, certificates, medals, trophies, results and Letters of Recommendation are not required at this point of the Application Process, unless requested by the School.
