Henry Foubister

Class of: 2017
School: St Bede’s College
Scholarship Partner: Briscoe Group Limited

Henry was inspired by his mum Angela who attended university and completed a BA as an adult student.

With a keen interest in politics, he would like to apply for a US Internship to study the US political system on Capitol Hill, complete a double degree by 2021, and, like many of our young people, own his first home.

Proud of his Ngai Tahu heritage in all he does, Henry has coached rugby having played since he was 4 years old, worked with the student army, and supported the scouting community, becoming a role model for younger scouts. What surprises many people who meet Henry is that he has studied classical violin not only as an interest, but as a way of giving back and inspiring others.
