Across Barriers – Welcome program for new migrants in schools -update

Hi this is jane Leroi, I’m coordinating the Space2b school program called “Across Barriers ” a collaboration between Space2b Social Design and three local schools. The program involves school kids developing a welcome program for new migrants into our school communities.   This program has been funded by the city of City Of Port Phillip

Our three schools are Christian Brothers College, St Kilda, CBC & Presentation College, Windsor, PCW and St Kilda Primary School, SKPS.  In the picture above is Genevieve and Vicly, who are working with me  on the St. Kilda Primary program and who both have kids at the school.

Ours first event was at PCW with Abe Nouk, from Creative Rebellion Youth  being our guest speaker. Through the voice of poetry Abe mesmerised the kids who were very impressed and inspired to know more about refugees and and how to live the dream with building upon oneself confidence and how to use self motivation to create a future path.

Here is one of the amazing poems from Abe Nouk To be  a poet
