School’s In for Refugees: A whole school approach to supporting students of refugee background
2nd Edition 2011
Launched in December 2011 by the Hon Ted Baillieu MLA, Premier of Victoria, School’s In for Refugees: A whole-school approach to supporting students of refugee
backgrounds (VFST 2011) is a resource that supports schools and schoolbased professionals in their efforts to provide high quality education to young people of refugee backgrounds.
“This is a really fabulous resource, and as the Child Safety Commissioner touched on in his foreword to the publication, the impact of trauma on learning ability and general well-being of students can be immense, and it’s vital that Victorian schools gain an understanding of the refugee experience, and provide for both the education and wellbeing of students.”
