Schools Program | RAH Research Fund

Together we can engage your students and help foster a sense of community responsibility.

The Royal Adelaide Hospital Schools Program provides an organised framework for secondary and primary school students to raise money to support life-changing medical research.

It’s a great way to encourage students to foster a sense of community through volunteering and philanthropy. As well as encouraging personal growth and leadership, they’ll be contributing to their own healthy futures.

Ideas for fundraising activities are as limitless as your students’ imaginations – whether that’s a quiz night, school dance, morning tea, silent auction, sponsored walk or casual or dress-up day (think accident and emergency theme or even a zombie apocalypse!)

Best of all, the proceeds from your event will help the world-class medical researchers at the Royal Adelaide Hospital find faster diagnoses, better treatments and ultimately cures.

Of course, your students can nominate the area of research in which they are passionate about, whether that’s cancer, heart disease, respiratory health (such as asthma) or other available research endeavours.

In return for supporting the Royal Adelaide Hospital Research Fund, the Schools Program will provide fascinating, educational insights into the inspiring world of life-saving medical research through:   

  • The opportunity to host an engaging medical research education session tailored to your learning program.
  • Attendance by four nominated students to our end-of-year Schools Medical Research Forum, including an exclusive tour of the new RAH and meet a world-class medical researcher who will explain how their work helps save lives.

It’s easy to get started!

E-cigarettes, or vaping, is one of the fastest growing pastimes in Australia and has the potential to be one of the deadliest.

We must protect the future health of our state, and especially the health of young people.
