Read an uplifting true story and watch a video about a young girl forced to flee her homeland.

Talk about the story. Although these events took place over eighty years ago, from the historical perspective the parallels afford children a new perspective of the current situation of child refugees and those displaced from overseas.

Talk about our multicultural community and how diverse our backgrounds are.

Encourage children to be inspired to make a difference in their communities by giving them confidence to stand up for what is right in the face of playground bullying and exclusions.

Participate in an exciting and creative arts & crafts workshop.

Take home your art piece and your own mini copy of In My Pocket.
