The Refugee Action Support (RAS) project in Sydney aims to help humanitarian refugee children to make the transition from Intensive English Centres to mainstream Australian high schools. RAS provides focussed literacy and numeracy support through the provision of tutoring centres, identifying the most effective pedagogies for use with refugee children, and developing pre-service teachers’ understanding of diverse student learners. RAS is an initiative of the University of Western Sydney, the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation and the NSW Department of Education and Training.
