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.
