Last Wednesday the Year Sixes enjoyed a visit from the Red Cross as part of their history programme which looks at migration. The students looked at individual migrant stories and learnt about the plight of refugees. One of the activities they experienced was role playing what it felt like to be an asylum seeker and the difficult decisions that people are forced to make. The students all developed their understanding of the plight of refugees and were shocked to learn that over 51 percent of the world's refugees are children just like them. In the coming weeks the students will participate in other Red Cross activities as part of the Young Humanitarian Challenge to further develop their understanding of humanitarian issues.
