John Moore arrived in the Warrnambool district from Ireland in the 1840s, followed in the 1850s by his brother James. The brothers acquired land on the Merri River close to Russell’s Creek. Seven of their sister Mary’s children followed them to Warrnambool in the 1860s.
Most members of the Moore family did well in their new home and have contributed considerably to the development of the community of Warrnambool and the Western District in the subsequent 150 years.
This scholarship has been funded from the estates of three of James’ grandchildren – Mary Isabella (Isabelle) Moore, Eileen Marjorie O’Brien (nee Moore) and John (Jack) Moore. The former two family members both undertook some or all of their nursing training at Warrnambool Base Hospital pre and post Second World War.
Despite the fact that all three eventually left Victoria for other states, this scholarship has been established because Isabelle, Marjorie and Jack were supported by and prospered in the Warrnambool community. It is the wish of their descendants that this scholarship might provide the opportunity for a current member of the Warrnambool or Western District community to take up the vocation of nursing and, in a similar way, contribute to the wellbeing of the community in which they reside.
