About the scholarship

This annual bursary is available thanks to the kindness and generosity of ACPNS alumnus, Rosemary Lee in honour of her late father, David Lee.

David is recognised in Australian soccer as a coach ahead of his time, and despite leaving school early became the Director of Soccer for New South Wales and Australia's highest qualified Australian born coach for many years. He was also the first Australian-born coach to gain the Football Association Coaching license, which was the highest qualification in the English-speaking world. David went on to become a national team selector (the Socceroos) and was the coach that found and developed many household soccer names as junior players until they moved to the national team or English Premier League including Harry Kewell and Brett Emerton.

Rosemary hopes that this memorial donation inspires future ACPNS students to also achieve greatness in their chosen careers.
