P2 Secondary School Program

Abraham Institute's Secondary School Presentations, which are based on the Together for Humanity model, aim to assist with the development of children's Intercultural Understanding in South Australian Schools. Hatred and intolerance, or acceptance and respect, are learnt early. Prejudice and hatred dividing people who come from different cultural and religious backgrounds are a threat to a harmonious society in Australia. 

The Abraham Institute works in SA Schools to help young people learn to co-exist peacefully through intercultural understanding.

We'd love to come to your school and work with your students, exploring the ideas of identity, belonging, values, respect, harmony and peace.
Using activities and games, the P2 program gives students the opportunity to safely explore, demystify and dispel their own beliefs about themselves and each other. It helps them to understand that there are harmful stereotypes, which we want to smash to create greater intercultural awareness and peace.

Through P2 they learn through interaction and Q and A that there are many ways to be Australian and that it’s our shared values that make it so. They learn how important it is for each one of us to feel included and like we’re part of society. It will afford students the opportunity to meet Educators from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds, maybe for the first time, and provide a safe space for them to ask our Educators about their cultures or religions.
