Milpera State High School is located in Chelmer and is an Intensive Language Centre catering to the settlement and language learning needs of newly arrived migrants and refugee background young people.
There are currently students from more than 30 different cultural backgrounds.
One of the school's key roles is to prepare the students for mainstream high school or TAFE.
It is really important to our students who have experienced the impact of dislocation due to war or loss of culture that their first language and culture are valued.
Graceville Uniting Church is proud to present 'Welcome to Our World', an art exhibition of Milpera State High School students. We believe it is part of our mission and ministry to engage with our community.
This art exhibition presents a valuable opportunity for the students to continue to build connections with their new communities and to continue to develop their language and cultural understanding of Australia, while also sharing their own culture.
A gold coin entry fee is requested - all donations will be given to the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre to support their work supporting and empowering those seeking asylum.
