Hello, we are the Peterson Family. Our daughter Clare attended Moorooka State School up to 2011. In October of that year, she passed away after a brave battle with brain cancer. We remain members of the MSS family as our two younger sons now attend.
Our Clare was a kind, generous child. It is these traits that we wish to carry forth in her memory. The Clare Peterson Foundation has established a memorial scholarship that will offer families struggling financially with financial assistance towards a full year’s tuition including uniforms, booklist and school excursions.
The scholarship will be awarded annually to one girl and one boy of any grade.
Applications close on the 31st of October each year for use the following school year. The recipient child’s names will not be disclosed to the school community in order to ensure privacy.
If you wish to apply, applications will be available shortly. Should you wish to make a donation to the Clare Peterson Foundation, information will be available shortly to provide details of how this can be done.
For those of you who knew Clare, you are truly lucky. For those who didn’t get to meet her, we invite you to share in the memory of a remarkable, courageous girl. Long may you remember her.
