Resources for Schools

Year: 2021
Edmund Rice Centre for Justice & Community Education

For many years the Edmund Rice Centre has been working to raise awareness of, and advocate for the rights of refugees and people seeking asylum. It has several resources for educating people about refugees, including the Refugees and People Seeking Asylum Education Activities Resource for Teachers.

This free 74 page Education Activities Resource offers 44 cross- curricular activities, which are practical, engaging and focused on increasing awareness about human rights and advocacy. The activities are adaptable to all year levels in secondary school and some can also be used with upper primary classes, students with special needs and they could also be used in community group discussions. Students are encouraged to think about refugees and people seeking asylum with compassion, to move their understanding from the head to the heart and then to some form of action.
