Sydney JMF Scholars head home for the school holidays

Sydney JMF scholars

Throughout 2020 our Sydney JMF Scholars, Shadeene Evans, Courtese Charlie, Brenda Hogan and Sharney Miller, have displayed incredible resilience, strength and positivity to push through the tough COVID-19 period. Especially when they were unable to travel home to Borroloola for the school holidays in April.

JMF monitored the government guidelines, restrictions and travel policies and coordinated a trip home for the Scholars for the July school holidays. With guidance and support from NT Government Travel Department, we applied for exemptions which meant our Scholars could quarantine in Darwin for 14 days safely and comfortably.

For their quarantine period JMF Skills and Fitness Coach, Claudia Panebianco, who accompanied the Scholars, mapped out a two-week agenda and activity plan which included schooling, fitness training, cooking and cleaning and painting. The Scholars were personally commended on their dedication and contribution to protecting the health of the NT community by a representative of NT’s Health Authorities.

The JMF Scholars then enjoyed two weeks in Borroloola with their family and friends.
