Pupils share Postcards of Hope for Refugee Week

22 June 2022

Friday 17 June marked ‘A Day Of Welcome’ for schools across the country as a part of an initiative set up by ‘Schools of Sanctuary’. The day looked to help young people learn about refugee migration and marked the start of Refugee Week (20-26 of June).

Norwich School commemorated the event with a special tutorial, encouraging pupils to learn about the history of migration to Norfolk, and exploring the real stories of refugees in the UK.

The tutorial ended with the creation of postcards to refugees across the world, sharing messages of support and solidarity. This was as a part of Refugee Week’s #simpleacts campaign, encouraging people to #sendamessage to share community values of hope and support. The postcards are set to become part of a display at school, to encourage a warm welcome to all.
