Write a note of encouragement
Starting school in a new country takes courage.
It’s not just the school that’s different – the language, culture, education system, friends and expectations are usually different too.
Every year over 7,000 school-aged children from refugee backgrounds resettle in Australia. You can support RMCC kids who are starting school by writing them a note of encouragement. We’ll put it into the backpacks we give them containing all the materials they’ll need for school.
It will be a great surprise when they discover your note and learn that there are people in their community cheering them on.
For instructions on how to participate, please enter your email below.
THESE NOTES WILL HELP THEM TO FEEL CONNECTED TO THEIR NEW HOME.
IT’S ALSO A WAY OF CHEERING THEM ON TO VENTURE INTO THEIR DREAMS, THEIR PASSIONS, ALL THE THINGS THEY WANT TO DO IN SCHOOL.”
