Program for schools and colleges in Sydney, Wollongong and Melbourne

Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) is offering an incursion program for schools in the Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan areas and Wollongong region.

Under the Face to Face program, a representative from RCOA and a speaker of refugee background present to students, teachers and other interested groups about the refugee experience. Refugee speakers share personal stories and give students the opportunity to learn about their experiences and their contributions to Australia. The presentations are linked to the school curriculum and cover who refugees are and where they come from, facts about refugees worldwide and in Australia, conditions faced by refugees overseas and Australia’s refugee policies. Incursions can be delivered as one-hour interactive presentations or two-hour workshops incorporating small group activities. The presentation package includes a comprehensive Resource Guide for teachers that contain links to lesson plans, follow-up activities and further reading. For more information, download our brochure.

What participants say about Face to Face 

Thousands of students, parents and teachers have participated in our presentation sessions and workshops since it was launched in February 2014. Here is what secondary and primary school students said after participating in the Face to Face program:

I learned that refugees aren’t just faceless masses like the media portrays them, they are individuals and have stories.

When he explained his story and his perspective, I felt he gave us an understanding of his experiences and we were able to sympathise with him.

Final Year Student, Sydney University: Your session was the highlight of the semester.

Teacher: The delivery of facts and clarification of terms and the story the refugee told of his struggles and triumphs was very powerful.
