AMADEO: CHANGING LATITUDES

The Third Space series is a unique project designed in response to the Australian Curriculum’s inclusion of the key elements of diversity competence: intercultural and ethical understanding, personal and social capability, and critical and creative thinking. Comprised of thirteen novellas, The Third Space aims to equip students with the requisite understandings, skills, attitudes and dispositions to deal with difference through reading stories focussed on young protagonists.

This series takes students on an introductory journey out of their own world and into the intriguing world of human diversity. Students are given a unique opportunity to step out of their own space and into ‘the third space’ – a space where people of different cultural, racial and belief systems are understood and respected. The novellas provide the conceptual tools and imaginative space to help students discover and participate in this ‘third space’ where multi-culture and multi-faith are key components of a society that is rich, harmonious and inclusive.

When Amadeo first arrives in Australia with his sister and parents, he’s greeted by the promise of ‘a better life’. A change. A chance. But Amadeo must adapt quickly to these changes: new place, new people, new school, new freedoms … all so different from what he’s used to. The challenge gets harder when his parents return to the Philippines and he has to make do with the distance, both physical and cultural, that now defines his life. You only really realise what something means to you when it’s taken away. Finding something to hold on to becomes all that’s left.

Australia in international politics

Author: Stewart Firth

The world changed for Australia after the terrorist attacks on the US on September 11, 2001 and the Bali bombings of 2002. Security became the dominant theme of Australian foreign policy. Australian military forces remained in Afghanistan years later, opposing the terrorist threat of the Taliban, while hundreds of Australian troops and police worked with public servants to build the state in Asia-Pacific countries such as East Timor and Solomon Islands.
