A top performing fine arts student from St Matthew’s Collegiate School, Gemma Sims, has been honoured for her outstanding work with a scholarship from Masterton Trust Lands Trust.

The Golden C’Art Scholarship is awarded to students yearly and will go toward Sims’ Bachelor of Design with Honours at Massey University in Wellington.

Sims said it was a “very nice surprise” to get the scholarship, which will be a big help towards her study fees.

The scholarship is worth $1000.

One 15-credit course at Massey University is $845.60 for a domestic student and Sims said, “the scholarship will take some of the stress off my study costs and allow me to focus more on my course”.

“Industrial design is part of so many of the products that we use every day.

“My goal is to work for a large company and design things that people will enjoy using.”

Sims said it was “pretty cool” to have a local organisation supporting students to study what they love doing and helping them to pursue their dreams.

“It’s a really nice feeling knowing the support is there in a small community.”
