Guideline for Students


4. Your School is Part of the Community


  1. In school you learn about what matters in a particular culture and you also learn how you are expected to behave and live your life. At school you are developing individual and group skills and you develop your self-identity as part of a larger community that may be complex and multicultural.
  2. If you feel displaced at school, there are other programs you may enrol in and which are part of non-formal education. There are community centres that may help you re-integrate in school through several activities; there are non-profit organisations and state-sponsored organisations that support your individual projects. There are also cultural associations where you may learn about other communication skills that are not merely academic.
