SPECIAL WEEK in SCHOOL - REFUGEE FOCUS WEEK
20 June 2022 (by admin)
Doing our bit to MAKE a DIFFERENCE. It's our school MISSION and we are all trying to MAKE that DIFFERENCE. We start with a very special assembly later today - all about our REFUGEE FOCUS WEEK.
Refugee Week is a UK-wide festival celebrating the contributions, creativity and resilience of refugees and people seeking sanctuary. Founded in 1998 and held every year around World Refugee Day on the 20 June, Refugee Week is also a growing global movement. We're part of that movement - a school of sanctuary.
About Schools of Sanctuary
'Schools of Sanctuary' is a network of over 300 primary and secondary schools all committed to creating a culture of welcome and inclusion for refugees and people seeking asylum.
Driven by teachers, school staff, parents, governors and community groups, this network supports the thousands of young people seeking sanctuary in the UK, raises awareness of the issues facing people in the asylum system, challenges misconceptions and builds social cohesion.
