Joint Statement on racism directed at Adam Goodes
“Australia must and can be better than this”
Following the weekend’s events when prominent Aboriginal AFL player and former Australian of the Year, Adam Goodes was booed at every turn during the Swans v West Coast Eagles AFL match.
Today in advance of the weekend round of AFL, 150 organisations join together to call for renewed efforts to stamp out racism in sport and everyday life.
A tribute to a much-loved teacher is helping 15 students stay at school
A scholarship scheme was set up in memory of Wyndham Community and Education Centre (WCEC) teacher Sandy Mein, who died unexpectedly on September 17 last year.
Mr Mein taught the centre’s re-engagement class for young people who had left school, as well as English-as-a-second-language classes for refugees.
On 17th June 2015 the Hon Tim Pallas MP officially launched the BA@Wyndham. This partnership between Wyndham CEC and Federation University is offering a fantastic pathway for young people to go to university in their own community. We would like to share with you some photos of the event.
Karenni refugee from Burma secure in a place to call home in Wyndham
He will be 40 next year but, for the first time in his life, Mae Sie Win is enjoying a basic state of grace most of us take for granted, living without fear and in a place where he feels he belongs.
His trauma dates back decades: as a 13 year old, taken by the Burmese military, kicked and beaten and barely fed as he carried their supplies across mountainous terrain; as an 18 year old, fleeing Burma to the safety of a refugee camp; then the better part of two decades as a stateless person in that camp.
