The Cybec Newcomers' Scholarship. In 2005 Roger and Pat Riordan were utterly disgusted by the hypocritical and un-Christian way in which Australia was treating refugees from overseas. As a symbol of their disapproval, the Foundation endowed two scholarships for children of refugees. One of these is the Cybec Newcomers' Scholarship at St Leonard ’s College. Generally this will pay all expenses for one deserving student.



Ezana Gessese Ezana is in Year 8 (in 2008). His parents were born in Ethiopia.
