No matter where we come from, what our nationality or religion is or what lifestyles we lead, all humans deserve the same, equal rights. Everyone wants to protect their family and offer them a better life.
The reality is that anyone could become a refugee, because it’s due to unfortunate circumstances and by no fault of the person. That’s why it’s important to help those that have had to abandon their homes and leave everything that they know behind to start their lives again.
To mark Refugee Day, each phase has focussed on a different book themed around refugees. Throughout the day, the children discovered that refugees are children first with their own names and identities, their situation does not define them. Refugee children have hopes, dreams and worries just like us. This is all work towards our School of Sanctuary Award.
“Migrants and refugees are brothers and sisters to be welcomed, respected and loved.” – Pope Francis
