QUAYDE WHITU SUPPORT GRANT

Liberal Arts

The Quayde Whitu Support Grant provides financial assistance to students in Liberal Arts courses at Christian Heritage College. The aim of the Grant is to support students with a specific financial need, for example the purchase of essential study equipment such as a laptop computer, books, desk, etc. Two Grants will be awarded each year; the value of each Grant is $2000. To be eligible, students need to be enrolled in a Liberal Arts course at Christian Heritage College.

About Quayde Whitu

The grant is donated by the Whitu family to honour the memory of their son Quayde Whitu, who was a student at Christian Heritage College from 2018 to 2019. Quayde was awarded a posthumous Diploma of Liberal Arts after his untimely death in 2019. Quayde’s generosity and kindness to others were always in honour of his love for Christ. He often reminded us that what we have is not ours, but God’s. As Quayde served and gave to meet the needs of others, he did so in a way that reflected the nature of Christ and show-cased God’s greatness in his life. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

About Norma Packer

Norma Packer (née Adams) was born in Toowoomba on 3 January 1918. She grew up in the Darling Downs region and went to high school at the Brisbane Commercial College. Following her graduation at age 16, she studied violin in Brisbane and later received an Associate in Music diploma. She remained a member of the Chermside Uniting Church orchestra until the age of 98. Norma’s lifelong study of the Bible has inspired her to overcome adversity over many years and to offer servant generosity to several generations of her family.

The Norma Packer Scholarship was donated to Christian Heritage College in 2019 to honour Norma on the occasion of her 100th birthday.
