Here at ALWS we are committed to providing schools with education resources that can inspire, equip and encourage students to explore their role in issues like social justice, human rights and development.
It doesn’t need to be a week, and it can be whenever suits you best … but here you’ll find a whole range of resources to inspire, inform and equip your students to be active and aware about justice and development. All year levels, linking in to a range of subject curriculum, focusing on a number of Australia-relevant countries.
Awareness Days have whole group and small group activities, guest speakers, workshops, audio visual presentations, food and culture used to inform and challenge students about injustice in the world and what we can do to help. The students who attend Awareness Day return to their schools fired-up for the work that is being done in the developing world! Awareness Days are offered to all Lutheran schools throughout Australia – simply get in touch to book yours!
After students have learnt about poverty and injustice, they often ask: "what can I do to help?" Our Community Education Officers can support your action initiatives, and can also offer you a wide range of areas to support that link to your students’ interests. Below are two ideas.
