School's in for refugees : whole-school guide to refugee readiness /

by Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc. 2004Description: 107 p. ; ill PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Reprinted in 2007 Produced by The Victorian Foundation for Survivors of Torture Inc. Summary: The Guide aims to strengthen the capacity of school communities, at both primary and secondary levels, to promote a supportive school environment for refugee students and their families, to nurture the mental health and wellbeing of refugee students and to enhance their educational outcomes. It also promotes social connectedness between refugee families and the school community. The purpose of the Guide is to provide all staff (administrators, teachers and non-teaching personnel) with strategies to help refugee students overcome learning difficulties and adjust to a new environment. Intended for use at both primary and secondary levels, the Guide outlines strategies for the classroom and wider school programs. It has been designed as an easy-to-use reference tool, specifically tailored to enable schools to improve the delivery of education to these students. Because there is a variety of school settings available to refugee students, and a range of experience among schools and staff in teaching refugee students, the format of the Guide has been developed in such a way as to allow schools to identify and implement the most appropriate policies, programs and structures for their particular school environment.

Growing up in an inclusive Victoria : Submission to the Victorian Government on the blueprint for Early Childhood Development and School Reform / BSL

by Brotherhood of St Laurence | Horn, Michael.

Publisher: Fitzroy Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: 20 p. PDF.Other title: Brotherhood of St Laurence submission on the Blueprint for Early Childhood Development and School Reform.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: The Brotherhood of St Laurence welcomes the Government’s commitment to better integration of policies across early childhood and education as signalled by the newly established Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. This integration opens up opportunities for targeted and sustained assistance to significantly improve the participation and development of children from disadvantaged backgrounds, especially Indigenous children. The Brotherhood also welcomes the continuing priority on strengthening educational achievement over the next five years through the proposed reform agenda. We strongly support the Government’s commitment to building the learning, skills and productivity of Victoria’s children and young adults. We therefore welcome the broad thrust of measures and investment announced in the 2008–09 State Budget. We support the three areas in the Blueprint on which the next phase of reform will focus: system development and reform, workforce reform and parent and community partnerships. We can see some acknowledgement of the important role that a child’s environment exerts on his or her development but there is not enough recognition of the impact of multiple disadvantage on children and the subsequent need for resources. We also have strong concerns regarding the lack of acknowledgment of the vital influence that social circumstances and more specifically social disadvantage exert on educational participation, commitment to learning and achievement. The social context of children and young people may include, for example, parents’ poor physical or mental health or learning disabilities, material deprivation, Indigenous or refugee background, homelessness, domestic violence and substance abuse. Furthermore, there are other barriers that children and young people face in addition to those addressed in the discussion papers. These include learning difficulties and behavioural problems which impact strongly on educational participation and outcomes for individual students, as well as on the ability of teachers and schools to ameliorate the effects of disadvantage.

Making up for lost time : young African refugees in Western Sydney high schools. /

by Cassity, Elizabeth | Gow, Greg | University of Western Sydney. Centre for Cultural Research.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Centre for Cultural Research 2006Notes: URL: 'http://www.uws.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0016/46321/MakingUpForLostTime_complete.pdf' Checked: 22/04/2009 2:41:37 PM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: "This report describes how refugee young people from African countries are negotiating new learning challenges in three Western Sydney high schools. Intensive English Centres (IECs) were attached to two of the schools.While primarily documenting the experiences of students, the research also explores teachers’ perceptions. In general, the research found that teachers need to know more about their new students from Africa. They wanted a knowledge base from which to build their practice with new African students. Similarly, the research found that parents/guardians and community members need more information about their children’s new learning contexts. ; The report fi nishes with a series of recommendations to improve the educational outcomes of young African refugees in high schools. Underlining them is the need for an integrated approach toward schooling in which various stakeholders work together." -- Executive summaryAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Critically engaged learning : connecting to young lives /

by Smyth, John | Angus, Lawrence | Down, Barry | McInerney, Peter.

Publisher: New York, NY Peter Lang 2008Description: x, 205 p.Other title: Adolescent cultures, school and society ; volume 42.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. [171]-183) and index. School to work SCHOOL TO WORKSummary: "This book - the finale in a trilogy by the authors - traces the way in which a number of disadvantaged schools and communities were able to move beyond deficit, victim-blaming and pathologizing approaches and access resources of trust, relationships, connectedness and hope. It describes how these Australian schools and communities were able to benefit from working with 'street-level' bureaucrats who had reinvented themselves around notions of socially just forms of capacity-building. The book provides a set of insights into what is possible from a critical engagement for school and community renewal perspective, by working with the resources that exist within disadvantaged contexts, even in damaging neoliberal policy times."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
