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.
