School Initiatives and Partnerships

Our vision is to build healthy, resilient and sustainable communities where all students have the opportunity to achieve to the best of their ability.

Our partnerships will enable us to focus our collective energies and resources to address the factors that hinder educational, health and career attainment of children in far western New South Wales.

We will continue to address the inequities confronted by rural, remote, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students living in our region through the implementation and evaluation of best practice models that integrate health, education and career choices.

The Health Career Academy Program Manual was officially launched at the BHUDRH on the 9th of December 2015.

The Health Career Academy Program is a full day that students in Grade 7-12 can be introduced to various health careers to build aspirations and attainment. It is also an opportunity to learn strategies and local investments to address health workforce shortages in the region.
