The last day of school before the Winter break seemed like the perfect opportunity to connect two different year groups with a similar aim – creating happy cards with messages of friendship for refugee children in the Netherlands.
Under the guidance of some enthusiastic Y12 students, the Y8 students created some sparkly, bright, happy cards for children living in difficult circumstances.
Our students were eagerly waiting for a nice break from school, but they could appreciate how fortunate they were at this time of year. Collectively, they decided to pay it forward and showed their compassion and understanding for others by spending time working together to extend warm greetings of friendship that they hoped would bring a smile to these children.
The cards were sent to refugee children as part of a campaign with Vluchtelingen Werk Nederland.
