Who is a refugee
Who is a refugee introduces students to the concept of the refugee experience through personal stories. The activities aim to broaden students’ understanding of refugee issues and to challenge any misconceptions that students may have.
Refugee journeys introduces students to the countries and regional areas that refugees flee from, and then provide insight to the many different experiences people have on their journey. The journey can be different for every person seeking refuge. Students will develop an understanding about the global reality of seeking asylum.
Refugee settlement highlights both the challenges that refugees experience during the resettlement process in Australia, and the contributions that refugees make to society upon starting a new life in a safe place. Students are encouraged to explore the lives of refugees living in Australia today.
Refugees in Australia
Refugees in Australia provides an overview of how refugees are supported in Australia through government, community, education and health initiatives. The activities are designed to help students make links between Australia’s global commitments to refugees and the implementation of programs at the local level.
