John devoted passion, patience and endless time to supporting Neville White and others in their work in the community. He was particularly passionate about education.
The Melbourne Indigenous Transition School (MITS) was founded in 2015 and aims to help students from remote communities make the transition to Melbourne schools. The program is for children of about year seven age and the boys and girls go to Melbourne schools on completion of one year at MITS.
The website: https://www.mits.vicedu.au/about provides further information. Those of us who have had contact with the school are very impressed by what they are doing.
Donations to MITS will be tax deductible. It would be of great help to us if your pledge could be communicated before the end of October as we hope to announce the scholarship in November.
