Noosa District State High School Year 10 humanities students wrote to newly arrived immigrants to Australia as a part of their study into migration this term.

The Year 10 class wrote to students at Milpera State High School in Brisbane, which is an educational institution dedicated to the settlement and English language development of recently arrived migrants from a non-English speaking background.

The Year 10 students wrote letters of introduction and included some questions for the migrant students to answer in a written reply.

The letter activity is designed to deepen an understanding and empathy for the migrant experience in the Year 10 students and allow the students from Milpera State High to practice their written English.

The Year 10 class eagerly await the letters back from Milpera State High School.
