  • We heard about how alcohol can shrink your brain and you learnt about famous Australians: Cathy Freeman, Don Bradman, Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe (although he comes from New Zealand)
  • Last week's forum was about children in detention. All of you agreed that children are innocent. It's not their fault.
    Rita said:
    I think the children are innocent, even if their mothers are illegal here.If the children grow up in detention, they will not get good living conditions and good education. This will affect all their lives.
    This is Jie's opinion:
    Children shouldn't be deprived of their liberty. They have a right to breathe the air of freedom, to live like other same aged children, including going to school etc.
    Finally Wei said: In the case of illegal migrants (people who overstay their temporary visas)I don't know why their mother chose to let their children stay in detention.The childen are dependent.As a mother I have sympathy for them.I think the children are most important.Their mother can do more things for their kids, such as: return to their hometown.
