A total of Pounds 4,000 to fund innovative secondary geography teaching is available from The Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers).

Grants of Pounds 150-Pounds 1000 will be made, funded by HSBC Holdings. Details: Alison Glazebrook, 0171 591 3006; e-mail: REX BEDDIS TRAVEL BURSARY.

The sum of Pounds 1,000 is available for the promotion of UKoverseas school linking (but not to fund pupil exchanges) together with the production of education materials related to environment and development issues. Details: Sarah King, World Wide Fund for Nature, 01483 426444.


"In Britain the push for better exam results and league table placings has meant that the needs of refugee children are often ignored," says Children of the Storm, a charity running a nationwide campaign to get the Office for Standards in Education to recognise the need for schools to support refugee students. Other projects include: "Distribution of Square Fish", a free welcome and awareness-raising pack for refugee children and those working with them (send SAE for Pounds 1.50); a small grants scheme; and a study support club.
