Students from Oaklands Catholic School reflect on plight of refugees.

Year 7 “On the move” workshop .

Many thanks to our CAFOD School visitor Alison Humphreys for leading the “On the move” workshops for Year 7  students at Oaklands Catholic School Waterlooville last term.  This workshop encourages the students to reflect on the plight of refugees and links very well to the Share the Journey campaign recently launched by Pope Francis.

Alison told us”  We focused particularly on the plight of the Syrian refugees.  The students were very engaged and showed remarkable insight and understanding.  They wrote messages to the refugees which were extremely thoughtful and, in some cases, very moving.  Some wrote of the importance of hope and that, as a community, they were praying for them as well as doing their bit to raise awareness of the refugee crisis with others.”
