3/4J we have been provided with one of the most amazing opportunities. There is a project ran from a place called Edinburgh. The project is called LIVED. LIVED teaches children like yourself about the growing world crisis called displacement. This is when people need to leave their homes because of many different reasons. Syrian refugees at Zaatari are experiencing displacement.
You know Mrs Joyce, I found this fabulous group of people and I had to try and see if there was an opportunity we could be involved, to help our understanding of the children living in Zaatari.
LIVED have a team of people that travel to schools and run workshops about the a video they have made called ‘Learning To Swim’. This film is made about the many different children living in Zaatari. We are very lucky to be able to see this video because it is usually only viewed as a teaching workshop. Australia is a long way for the LIVED team to travel. Mrs Joyce has been given permission from LIVED for us to watch and and use the video for our writing and learning.
I feel very honoured to be able to work with you on developing our understanding of Zaatari and LIVED will be waiting for feedback on your thoughts.
Here is a trailer of the video to give you a sneak preview:
