Scholarship success

This year promises to be an exciting one for Sacred Heart Catholic High student, Michael Callaghan.  

Recently it was announced Year 12 student, Michael had been awarded a prestigious Arkwright scholarship in recognition of his design work – one of only a handful of students in the North West to receive the honour.

Michael said: “As part of the aptitude paper, I was asked to produce a range of designs for interactive refuse bins.

“These included a sweet-dispensing bin and one that played Kool and the Gang’s Celebrate whenever someone put rubbish in it.”

Being an Arkwright scholar means Michael will receive a bursary to support his studies in upper school.

Michael added: “Ultimately, I’d like to study a degree in some form of engineering. The Arkwright scholarship is a fantastic opportunity and I’m certainly enjoying the experience.”
