This unit of work is designed to equip young people to take a stand against racism in their community, by valuing diversity and encouraging others to do the same. The unit is linked to the Australian Curriculum: Health and Physical Education.

Students explore issues of racism and its impact on people from diverse backgrounds. They also consider the ways in which we can value diversity within the community and celebrate the different cultures represented within schools and the wider community.

Students are challenged to take action on behalf of people who have experienced racial discrimination or harassment. The overall message of the unit is that we are never too young to take a stand against bullying and harassment.
