The Darwin community is celebrating Refugee Week with a variety of events. Families from the SIEU participated in a special community lunch on Saturday 16th June at Melaleuca Refugee Centre as part of the Welcome Dinner Project.

Refugee Week provides an opportunity for the Australian public to recognise and better understand the courage and contribution of refugees. People from across the world who have sought and in some cases found, safety in Australia. Hearing their stories during Refugee Week reminds us that these powerful people are defined by so much more than their past. People who today are making many valuable contributions to Australian society and who show immense courage and resilience.

The SIEU students certainly made a contribution to the lunch through sharing food, meeting new people and playing the drums.
