Pupils learn about the plight of refugees
Children, staff, parents and governors at St Cuthbert's RC First School walked around the Berwick walls to join CAFOD in its Share the Journey campaign for as many primary schools to walk 24,900 miles '“ the distance around the world '“ to show they care about the millions of people forced to flee their homes.
They used CAFOD resources to listen to stories from different refugees around the world.
“Thank you to Barbara Simspon, a CAFOD volunteer, who led the school on this reflective journey,” said headteacher Clare McGregor. “We want to show how strongly we feel about our global neighbours around the world and the difficult journeys they are forced to make.”
