This week School Council are promoting awareness of two national campaigns.
Refugee Week takes place every year across the world in the week around World Refugee Day on the 20 June. In the UK, Refugee Week is a nationwide programme of arts, cultural and educational events that celebrate the contribution of refugees to the UK, and encourages a better understanding between communities. Pupils have learned about the plight of refugees through an assembly and in their PSHE lessons or pastoral time,
It is also the Week of Action for Send My Friend to School. Around the world there are a staggering 264 million children who cannot attend school and of these some 246 million children are out of school because of violence.
Alfriston pupils have been comparing safe and dangerous schools and completing posters which will be sent to our MP, Rt Hon Dame Cheryl Gillan, to lobby her about the issue.
