Asylum Seekers and Refugees Education Resources

AS_schools_resource_Jun2016_1.gifThe Edmund Rice Centre's free publication Asylum Seekers and Refugees Education Resource provides activities for students which are practical, engaging and focused on increasing awareness about human rights and advocacy.

The Education Resource is available to download at no cost and offers 35 cross-curricular activities, adaptable to all year levels in secondary school. Some activities can also be used with primary classes, students with special needs and with community groups. 

Students are encouraged to think about asylum seekers and refugees with compassion, to move their understanding from the head to the heart.

We encourage teachers to send images, presentations, exhibitions, speeches, art work etc of their students' work to share on our website.
