On the 29th June 1991, the life of Terry Prunster was tragically lost as a result of a boating accident near Coral Bay. In his ten short years, he had become well known to many in the St Anthony’s Community simply by being the kind of boy who enjoyed life and was a friend to all who were fortunate enough to have the pleasure of meeting him. Terry was regarded by his classmates as “a good friend” and “a good sport”. Terry was not outstanding in any area of the school’s diverse activities, but he always participated to the best of his ability and he did so with a sense of fun and enjoyment. In short, Terry Prunster was a student who made an impact simply by his warm and generous nature – a good example to follow.
Following the loss of Terry to the School and Parish Community, St Anthony’s School Board decided to commemorate his memory by the establishment of the Terry Prunster Memorial Scholarship.The purpose of the scholarship is to assist a student from St Anthony’s School, to progress to Year 7 at a Catholic Secondary College within the Archdiocese of Perth. The scholarship is made available to all students who attend St Anthony’s School Wanneroo and the value of the scholarship is up to $2500 per annum. This scholarship is awarded annually to a Year 6 student who fits the criteria set down by the trust. In 2009, two Scholarship were awarded as both Year 7s and Year 6s progressed to high school for the first time.
The scholarship will be only for the duration of one year. The scholarship will be funded from interest earned on investment of funds in the Memorial Scholarship Fund.
