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.

Seeking asylum alone : a study of Australian law, policy and practice regarding unaccompanied and separated children. /

by Crock, Mary.

Publisher: Annandale, N.S.W. Federation Press [2006]Summary: Australia s refugee status determination system was established with adult asylum seekers in mind. Unaccompanied and separated children face obvious disadvantage in both articulating their story and in being heard. Often at the crucial first point of contact with authorities, children are required to articulate their need for protection without either an advisor or guardian and case studies of children within the asylum process suggest that immigration officials do not always have appropriate skills to deal with child asylum seekers. This report encourages Australian officials to think seriously about children as refugees in their own right particularly when the children are travelling alone.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

The boy who wouldn't die /

by Vincent, David Nyuol | Nader, Carol.

Publisher: Fairfax Books 2012Description: 232 p., [12] p. of plates : col. ill., col. ports. ; 24 cm.Summary: David Nyuol Vincent was a little boy when he fled southern Sudan with his father, as war raged in their country. He left behind his distraught mother and sisters, his village and his childhood. He would never return. For months David and his father walked across southern Sudan, barefoot, desperately searching for safety, food and water. They survived the perilous Sahara Desert crossing into Ethiopia only to be separated. David was taken in and trained as a child soldier, surviving the next 17 years of his life alone in refugee camps. Life was a relentless struggle against starvation, air bombings and people determined to kill him and his people. In 2004 David was offered a humanitarian visa as one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and was resettled to Australia. Traumatised by what he had seen and endured, he went about the slow and painful process of making a new life for himself-a life away from hunger, away from guns, away from death. A life where David is determined to improve the plight of his people both here in Australia and back in South Sudan. Told with frankness and humour, this is the powerful account of a young man's resilience. The story of a boy who refused to dieAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (2).
