Fortescue-MADALAH Partnership Launch

Fortescue-MADALAH Partnership Launch

7 April 2022

MADALAH staff and scholars were excited to join Fortescue Metals Group (Fortescue) to celebrate the launch of their new partnership.

Under this partnership, Fortescue will directly support eight secondary and three tertiary scholars from the Pilbara to achieve their educational aspirations at some of WA’s leading boarding schools and universities.

During the launch Hale School students Kade Higgins (year 9) and Isaiah Stevens (year 10) thanked and acknowledged Fortescue for joining our MADALAH family.

We were very proud of both boys for stepping out of their comfort zone to be involved in a board room briefing with Fortescue chief executive Elizabeth Gaines and for speaking so well in front of lots of new people whilst being streamed to the entire Fortescue workforce.

The support MADALAH receives from our corporate partners allows us to provide quality education to Indigenous students from across WA.

MADALAH thanked Fortescue with scarfs and ties designed by current secondary scholars.

If you are interested in making a difference please reach out to see how you too can partner with MADALAH.

Acknowledgement of Country

MADALAH acknowledges and pays tribute to the Whadjuk Noongar, the Traditional Custodians of the Lands on which we work, and we pay our respects to their Elders – past, present and emerging. This acknowledgement extends to the First Peoples’ land across the state of Western Australia which is home to the many students that we support.

MADALAH recognises and values the continuity of cultural, educational and spiritual practices of First Peoples.

We wish to advise our First Peoples that this site may contain the names, images or audio-visual recordings of people who have passed.
