Schools Challenge

Healthcare in the future

The Richmond Dispensary was started in October 1868 by the community. It provided medical care to the poor. Today, we are known as Access Health and Community and we are the oldest community health service in Australia.  The Secondary School Challenge celebrates the 150 years of our history.

The challenge is open to all secondary school students who attend School in Yarra, Boroondara or Manningham. Any secondary school in Boroondara, Manningham and Yarra can take part.

Individuals or teams (up to four students) can also register.


The challenge is to create a presentation of what healthcare in the future will look like.
