      Hi

      My Daughter will be doing grade 6 next year . I’d like to find out if the scholarship is only awarded to poor/disadvaged kids or even the middle class but talented and hardworking kids with excellent marks can apply?

      My daughter scores good grades and I would like her to attend one of your sponsored high schools but I cannot afford them.

      Thanks
