Amesege’nallo! (thankyou!)

This one is a bit of fun. Through my work at Gilles St Primary School, I get to hang out with some really great kids from all over the world. Lots of them come through the ‘new arrivals’ scheme, especially designed to help new migrant/refugee children settle in school. The programme was set up by Mrs Marina, who recently left the school. As a special thankyou for all her hard work and innovation, we decided to make a quick little film for her. I spoke to two graduates of the new arrivals scheme, Elsa & Wondwoson, about what it’s like to move from Ethiopia to Australia. We also showed them a bit of footage from when they first arrived – it’s great to see how far they’ve come! Have a look at the film below – I hope you enjoy it.
