Heath-Huxley Bursary

As Lesley Huxley AM listened to Indigenous leader and lawyer Noel Pearson deliver a BGS Speech Day address, she was inspired to join with her brother Nicholas Heath and mother Betty Heath to offer a student the opportunity for an education at Brisbane Grammar School.

They decided to fund a bursary at BGS, covering school and boarding fees, for one boy who could not otherwise have enrolled at the School.

The family have derived great satisfaction as they have seen how their gift of education is making an impact and difference to that student’s future.

Lesley’s grandfather received a scholarship to attend BGS in the early 1900s. Her two sons also benefited from a BGS education. The bursary donation is this family’s way of giving back.

The bursary has changed my life, it has changed my family’s life. Coming to BGS gives me the greatest head start in life.
