- Highlight of the week: 15/8/18 Students from Australian International Academy, an Islamic School in Northwest Sydney and Masada College, a Jewish school on the North Shore, spend the day together learning about each other. Discussion and activities explore collaboration, similarities and differences relating to values, things we don’t want to hear being said about our communities.

Our Mission: Development of children’s Intercultural Understanding in Australian schools.
The attitudes we adopt at school age can last a lifetime. Hatred and intolerance, or acceptance and respect are seeded early. Prejudice and hatred dividing people who differ on matters of faith or cultural origin are a threat to a harmonious Australia.
TFH works in Australian schools to foster tolerance through intercultural understanding. It is an organisation comprised predominantly of Christians, Muslims and Jews, but also includes others who believe in the importance of early intervention.TFH’s teams deliver programs to students aged between 8 and 18. For some children, Together for Humanity school sessions may be the first time in their lives they have met a Jew or a Muslim. Such encounters can be powerful.
Established in 2002, we have worked with more than 100,000 Australian students and teachers in primary and secondary schools across the nation. We also have three online professional development courses and a wide range of resources for use by teachers, students and the general community.
