One of the aims of the Irish Red Cross is to help refugees integrate into Irish society. Students and schools can take action to support refugees by participating in national refugee day which took place on June 20<sup>th</sup> 2023. The UNCHR is has a refugee festival week for the first time this year. School communities could also use sport as a means of welcoming refuges and diversity through participating in different sports and celebrating different cultures within the school community. </span></p>

The children in the school council organised a fundraising drive in May for those affected by the Turkish disaster earlier this year. We collected clothes and food and dropped them to the Turkish Embassy. The children loved being involved in this project. We could also invite the Red Cross into the school to perhaps give a talk to the senior classes on their work with refuges in Ireland and abroad</span>
