Culture and Diversity in the Classroom
Build understanding of the refugee experience in your school
SCARF’s Culture and Diversity in the Classroom program aims to build understanding of the refugee experience. Our community educators from refugee and non-refugee backgrounds are experienced in delivering tailored presentations for primary school students, high school students and teachers.
Through interactive activities, students are invited to walk in another person’s shoes, connecting with the experiences refugee entrants face. This can help to challenge misconceptions, build empathy and encourage inclusion. Students will learn how we each can play a role in creating more welcoming communities by having positive and informed conversations and standing up against discrimination.
Through sharing personal stories and giving audiences the opportunity to learn about refugee journeys, we aim to provide positive connections between refugee entrants and the wider community to support social and economic inclusion. We promote the positive contribution that refugee entrants make to our community and our country.
