Principal:
Hi, I'm Liliana Mularczyk, Principal of Merrylands High School. I'm in my fifth year here. We're a school of 800 students, 64 per cent language background other than English. There are approx 54 cultures involved in that, with a significantly growing proportion of refugees. Because of our multicultural mix it is really important for us that we have responsibility and respect in everything we do.
Ms Belinda Giudice:
The projects that our school has been involved in is called 'Values in Action: Our Community Counts' and it focuses on respect, responsibility and right choice as avenues to underpin everything that happens across our school community.
Student 1:
