\"My Walk To School\", while a fictional composite of Australia\'s many successful refugee stories portrayed by actors, tells the story of a young former refugee girl, Kishani, and her desire to one day be a teacher. The story not only shows the long journey Kishani makes everyday on her way to school, it represents the long journey many of Australia\'s thousands of successfully settled refugees have undertaken before finally calling Australia \'home\'. Children who are former refugees go to schools all over Australia and enjoy the benefits of growing up, and being educated, in a safe and nourishing learning environment with friends of all ages and cultures. Refugees actively contribute to Australian communities and the Australian way of life. Celebrate Refugee Week by sharing this story with your friends and family.
