Refugee Week: Circle of Silence

On Friday 23 June at Padua College's Rosebud Campus, students and staff stood in solidarity with refugees and displaced people by participating in a ‘Circle of Silence’. Each year, millions of people are forced to flee their homes to seek protection from persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, social group or political opinions. We stood in silence to encourage and remind our country of its obligations to the most vulnerable of people. Refugee Week also gave us the opportunity to demonstrate our respect for the many contributions made by refugees to Australian society. We thank all for their support.
