Refugee Awareness Week

Refugee Awareness Week

Posted: Tue 21 Jun 2022

On Monday we talked about International Refugee Awareness Week. At Highfield all our children have a very good understanding of what it means to be a refugee. The children raised over £2300 for Refugee Action, a charity that supports families in setting up new homes and giving hope for the future. Refuge Action wrote a lovley thank-you card to the children. The card had an abstarct painting done by a refugee artist on the cover. The painting was called, "Menagerie of Birds". The children enjoyed looking at the painting and listening to the words of the artist, SAM. "This piece is inspired by birds and how freely they fly. It reminds me of freedom. As a person seeking asylum I feel caged and trapped into an asylum system with no freedom in sight."
