April 26th, 2017 VILC  Newsletter

Hello and welcome to another VILC newsletter!

We hope you have used some of our resources to introduce the ANZAC day to your students!

In this issue we discuss the situation around North Korea and how it may affect Australia. The new Australian citizenship requirements are also part of this issue reflecting the debate about Australian values.
Other news from around the world includes the blind hiring technique in Canada and the new craze in Japan - salad cakes! Finally, if any of our subscribers are considering getting a dog, they will definitely benefit from listening to an item about the website that matches dogs with owners.
