Education resources for Refugee Week and beyond

Want to involve your local school in Refugee week? Refugee week 2018 is the 17th to the 23rd of June. The NSW Education Department has produced an excellent teaching resource called Roads to Refuge suitable for upper primary through to year 10 which covers a number of curriculum areas. It includes lesson plans-videos, fact sheets, and worksheets.
It is worth passing the link on to your local school. They take notice when locals contact them!!

    9. Eat like a refugee!
      https://actforpeace.rationchallenge.org.au/The 2018 Act for Peace Ration Challenge raises money and awareness for refugees in Jordan, as well other communities.

      What you eat reflects, as closely as possible, what it’s like to eat rations as a Syrian refugee in Jordan.

      Act for Peace Challenge ration packs contain exactly the same food, in almost the same quantities, as they distribute to refugees. If you don’t get your entry in on time you can still take the challenge but have to buy your own food!!
