Young police legatee Elayna Day was awarded the Catherine Burn Scholarship in late 2016 which enabled her to participate in the Outward Bound Program. This program is a 12-day personal development experience which builds integrity, responsibility, resilience, leadership and compassion.
Elayna met with Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn who generously gave her time to sit with Elayna and hear about her experience participating in the Outward Bound Program.
Ma'am Burn has been a long-term supporter of our charity since 2011 and has supported the advancement of education and life experiences of female legatees through three separate leadership programs.
The Kerslake Scholarship was established in memory of Graham George Kerslake who passed away in 2013. He made a generous bequest to NSW Police Legacy and to honour his long standing commitment to teaching trades education, one police legatee will be awarded the $5,000 scholarship a year.
The first annual Kerslake Technical Scholarship was awarded to 21 year old Alex Powell who is currently completing his fourth year of a Certificate III in Carpentry.
“I had always wanted to become a police officer, but during my last years of school decided to do a trade first, as my dad always said it was important to have something to fall back on."
