The HPE, Mathematics and Literacy unit teaches students about the effects of poverty and what constitutes living in poverty in Australia. Students take a look at real-life stories, analyse and interpret current data to discover the realities of living and experiencing poverty. Throughout the lessons, students will discuss future impact-driven initiatives that aim to raise awareness and reduce the effects of poverty in order to create better opportunities for all people living in Australia. Our partner Anti-Poverty Week aims to support the Australian community to have an increased understanding and take action collectively to end it. Since 2002, they’ve been active every year in the week around the 17th of October, the United Nations Day for the Eradication of Poverty.
