Chris Stirling Memorial Award


The Chris Stirling Memorial Award was conceived in 2003 by the Parent volunteers employed in the CHS Uniform Shop. Chris was a parent who was actively involved with Chatswood High School from 1996 to 2003, when she died after a short terminal illness.

In memory of Chris, the CHS P&C Association established an Educational Scholarship, funded from the Uniform Shop profits, to be awarded annually to a selected student.


Candidature for the Award is merit-based including the following criteria:

  1. a current CHS student advancing from Year 10 into Year 11 at CHS who has dealt with an adversity or challenge that may affect their schoolwork.
  2. the student may be from mainstream, the support unit or selective stream.


The CHS Year 10 Adviser in consultation with the School Welfare Committee will select the Awardee from the applicant Candidates. Any staff member can nominate a student.
