The Melbourne and Michael Folkes Foundation to me means that I should be Mighty In Character. It encourages me to be strong in everything I do. It helps me to be confident in myself and in everything I do. It helps me to believe in myself and to do my school work. It also helps me to achieve my goals and set them the right way. It also encourages me to build my faith, joy and peace.
The Medical Care Initiative will have a number of phases. The Foundation's first phase intends linking with the Auditorium Initiative at Mount Waddy Primary School to use the auditorium as the perfect environment for bringing Health Fairs to the school. Initially, medical professionals from the USA will be attending the fairs providing information and health care for the school's students and the community at large.
However, it is the Foundation's hope that the Health Fairs will provide a model for local health care professionals to continue in the future and that this will utilize local skills and knowledge, improving provision for students to ensure lack of health is not a barrier to learning and achievement.
Before the first phase is implemented the Foundation is seeking further information and relevant permissions.
