Recently I attended an information session on utilizing interpreter service. If you think that you may need access to interpreters, we will be putting together a short, 1 page ‘Help and Information’ sheet. If your service would like a copy, please advise us and we would be pleased to forward a copy. We’ll also put a copy on the website shortly.
We attended a Multicultural Conference where we listened to politicians, professors, teachers and people working with CALD individuals and communities speak about their experiences and approaches to diverse cultures in Australia. It was extremely informative and made us aware of just how much there is to understand about relevant legislation and Inclusive Multicultural Policies.
Lastly, next week is Refugee Week. You can find out more about events and activities at www.refugeeweek.org.au.
One wonderful quote I would like to share with you, so that you can share it with others, from those that understand immigration and refugee status:
“People who come to Australia do not come to change our values; they come because of our values”.
