Show Me The Way met recently with the Community Migrant Resource Centre (CMRC) in Parramatta, NSW to further strengthen our ties with a joint partnership. The CMRC, a not for profit, focuses on providing specialised support services to newly arrived migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants.

The CMRC kindly researched and sourced video talent for Show Me The Way - Parramatta 2014, supporting students from a refugee background. The CMRC will be supporting the program again in 2015. Stay tuned for more news.

PALS win for Harvey

Story courtesy the Koori Mail

HARVEY Primary School is the overall winner in this year’s Western Australia PALS (Partnership, Acceptance, Learning, Sharing) Awards.

PALS is an initiative of the WA Department of Aboriginal Affairs aimed at encouraging youth to help strengthen relations between Aboriginal and other people.

State Aboriginal Affairs Minister Peter Collier said the winning project was a great example of how the PALS program was used in schools to build cultural awareness and understanding through shared experiences.

“Harvey Primary School ran activities during NAIDOC week that included Noongar language lessons, dancing, art, a football clinic, storytelling, a cook-up and a focus on bush medicine,” he said. “This was a fantastic project that allowed all students to engage with Aboriginal culture through something that appealed to them, be it sport, art, storytelling or food.”

This year, 188 schools across WA coordinated 225 PALS projects.
