A $500 Scholarship will be awarded to a selected music student who is actively involved in instrumental music and intends to study classroom music up to and through their senior years.

Neal Wilson established and ran the Nagle College Music Program from 1978 to 1997. As Director of Music, Neal engaged countless students to the music program who have cherished the gift of music. Before coming to Bairnsdale and Nagle College, Neal was a Drum Major in the Australian Army Band. To this day we appreciate Neal’s contribution to our music program and thank the Bairnsdale RSL for recognising and continuing Neal’s legacy. This scholarship has been made possible by the generosity of the Bairnsdale RSL who wish to encourage students to develop and pursue instrumental music, both at Nagle College and throughout their lives.

Eligible students will be considered by means of a short audition/performance, their commitment to the instrumental program and performance in their College academic studies. Instrumental students from all year levels are encouraged to apply. We understand that 2020 and 2021 have not been normal years and as such the opportunities of music activities have been limited. Please refer to/list any involvement over the previous years when completing the attached form. Auditions will be held during the week beginning Monday 15 November. Dates and schedules will be advised once all applications have been received.

Applications can be made online via the link below. Alternatively forms can be collected from Student Reception or the Music Office. Applications must be received by Friday 12 November at 4 pm.

Please read the application form carefully and make sure you provide all the necessary information, including copies of any relevant certificates, awards, etc.

The scholarship will be awarded to a Nagle Music student during the 2021 presentation ceremony.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mr Andrew Long, Director of Music, on 5152 9932.
