Dr Sue Morey AM Scholarship Appeal
Celebrating the Difference Scholarships Make
In 1954, a young Sue Morey received a £500 scholarship to continue her Redlands journey through five years of Secondary School.
It was an invaluable means of support at a time when Sue’s father was unwell. Though Redlands’ educational offerings in the 1950s were modest—with no opportunity to study chemistry or physics—Sue was able to pursue her dream, beginning around age 7, to become a doctor, and then dedicating more than 50 years of extraordinary service to public health in Australia.
Sue Morey attended the School from Kindergarten and graduated as Dux of the Class of 1959 before going on to study Medicine at Sydney University and a Master’s Degree in Public Health at Harvard University. With over 50 years of service to community health, she has made an enormous contribution across metropolitan, regional and rural Australia and is perhaps best known for her dedicated leadership as Chief Health Officer for NSW from 1988 to 1994. In 1999 she was made a Member of the Order of Australia for her service to the development and promotion of improved public health services.
For us, Sue’s story is a wonderful exemple of what our means-tested Scholarship Program is designed to provide: the opportunity for talented young people to benefit from a Redlands education, so they may fully let their light shine.
Means-tested scholarships also help nurture two of our most cherished qualities, diversity and inclusivity. Combined with the strong international representation in our community, this contributes to Redlands’ culture as a safe, highly respectful space, where individual differences are valued, and our children learn to be both influential and considerate global citizens.
Dr Sue Morey AM Scholarship
For these reasons, this year’s Scholarship Appeal celebrates the achievements of remarkable Redlander Dr Sue Morey AM, a woman who has contributed to all our lives, directly or indirectly. The means-tested scholarship named in her honour will be awarded to a commencing Year 7 2024 student for the duration of their Secondary School education.
Your support of this year’s Scholarship Appeal will help make this possible.

Redlands Foundation Scholarships
An endowment fund for a means-tested Scholarship was launched in 2010 by former Principal Dr Peter Lennox with the vision of providing opportunities for exceptionally talented students who will make a strong contribution to both Redlands and our society, as well as enhancing the diversity of our student body.
Redlands is dedicated to being a diverse and inclusive learning community.
Our goal is to award one means-tested Redlands Foundation Scholarship annually for the entire six years of a Redlands Secondary School education. Due to the generosity of the Redlands community, we currently have one Year 9 and one Year 7 student benefitting from the opportunities a Redlands education offers and one student has been awarded the Peter Lennox Scholarship, joining our Redlands learning community in Year 7 2022. The Belinda Oxley Scholarship will be awarded to a student commencing in Year 7 2023. The 2022 Scholarship Appeal will be named after Dr Sue Morey AM (pictured below). The establishment of the Dr Sue Morey AM Scholarship honours and celebrates her outstanding contribution to community health across metropolitan, regional and rural Australia.
Scholarships are made possible by generous donations from Redlands parents, staff, alumni and friends and provide a Redlands education opportunity to a student who may otherwise be unable to attend the School. Thank you for your consideration and support.
