Mapoon School Health Checks
Mapoon State School was a hive of healthy activity when a group of health professionals, including doctors, nurses and allied health staﬀ from Apunipima and Queensland Health gave the students their Health Checks.
Katelyn Winkworth, Apunipima’s School Health Coordinator said that the turn out for health checks was fantastic, with more than 90% of enrolled students receiving a health check.
“It was great to have the assistance of the local community staﬀ and support from the Learning and Development Team in Cairns,” Katelyn said.
David Nichols, Educator and Professional Lead for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander Health Workers, was able to assist in the School Health Checks and do some training with local Health Workers in the ﬁeld.
