Prendiville Scholarship

Old Aquinians awarded with uni honours

Congratulations to two recent Aquinas graduates who have been recognised for their achievements by the University of Notre Dame.

Nicholas Elphick (’16) has been awarded the Prendiville Scholarship – an annual scholarship acknowledging an outstanding Aquinas graduate.

Nicholas has represented WA and Australia in Water Polo and currently has a scholarship at the WA Institute of Sport (WAIS). He is hoping to represent Australia at the U20 World FINA Water Polo Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, in August, with the ultimate goal of representing the nation at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. “I would like to thank the Prendiville family for providing this scholarship which will help me with my studies and in achieving my future goals,” Nicholas, a Bachelor of Physiotherapy student, said.

Ethan Williams (’15) received the School of Health Sciences Vice Chancellor’s Medal, which is awarded to an undergraduate student from each school with the highest average weighted percentage mark for eligible units in the previous academic year.

Ethan is studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science, alongside a Pre-Medicine Certificate and hopes to study a Doctor of Medicine in the future.
