The Shaz Patterson Memorial Scholarship

The late Shaz Patterson was a foundation student at Paraparaumu College who loved Music and Drama.  Committed to young people, Shaz was always keen to see them achieve their potential in whatever they chose to follow.

This is the seventh year of the Shaz Patterson Scholarship with the aim of students being able to follow their passion without money being a barrier to their success.

The Scholarship is to help a student at Paraparaumu College (in any year level) pursue their passion in any aspect of performing arts/music.  This could be to help pay for music/singing tuition, to buy an instrument, to attend a holiday drama course, etc.
