Anti-Poverty Week

Welcome Back !

Week One , Term 4 is Anti-Poverty week :
Poverty and severe hardship affect more than a million Australians.

Around the world, more than a billion people are desperately poor.

In Anti-Poverty Week, YOU can help fight poverty and hardship!

The main aims of Anti-Poverty Week are to:

– Strengthen public understanding of the causes and consequences of poverty and hardship around the world and in Australia; and

– Encourage research, discussion and action to address these problems, including action by individuals, communities, organisations and governments.

Members of Projects Abroad addressed year 8 and 9 assemblies this week to highlight their observations of poverty first hand and will address the whole school in an assembly in the coming weeks.

To raise awareness there we hosted a bake sale on Thursday in the learning hub while images of our Projects Abroad expedition were displayed.
