On Wednesday, 9 June, Mr Slabbert, also known as the STEAM teacher, shared his migration story with the whole of Year 6. Mr Slabbert migrated to Australia from South Africa in 2019. Mr Slabbert moved to Australia because he wanted his son to live a safe/peaceful life here as he grew up. South Africa is quite a dangerous place if you’re not a tourist. Mr Slabbert chose Australia because it was quite similar to South Africa in terms of the languages, religions and culture. He also chose this wonderful country because of its multicultural background, which makes it very welcoming. It was a wonderful presentation that made some cry but was fascinating to listen to.
