We are supporting Refugee Week at Balshaw's with a number of events.


Tuesday 20th June - The Great Big Live Assembly

On Tuesday 20th June, our students took part in The Great Big Live Assembly in support of Refugee Week.

This gave the students the opportunity to see what life is like for young people who are refugees around the world.

The information below is from the Sanctuary Foundation 

For the first time, we will gather schools together via a live online broadcast that is inspirational, informative and interactive. The 20-minute Great Big Live Assembly will help children see for themselves what life is like for many children around the world. As well as discovering stories and statistics, children in schools around the UK will be able to connect with their counterparts in a refugee camp. Our aim is for children across the UK to recognise and celebrate the contribution refugees make to life in the UK and demonstrate some of the ways we can all stand with refugees.

The video maybe available for a short while to view here.
