The Sara Pilkington Personal Development Fund

Sara Pilkington was a student at Collingwood who sadly passed away in 2012. Her parents always encouraged her to make the most of every opportunity, so in Sara's name, they generously established a fund to support students who wish to undertake rewarding projects which they otherwise might not be able to afford.

Please follow the links below to read a selection of reports from our Sara Pilkington Fund recipients.
