Having done some research to respond to this post, I can only imagine how hard it must be for migrants and refugees to find services available to them in the locality. I did find the availability of an English language class for beginners in the local community centre near my school as well as Saint Vincent de Paul services.

We welcomed many children from Ukraine into our school in March 2022 and as a whole school community made an effort to ensure the children felt safe and welcome. We had a welcoming committee with children who spoke their language. Many children brought in toys as donations to the new members of our school community (on their own initiative) and we made an effort to say good morning and good bye in the languages of all the children in the class to show how diverse and inclusive our class can be.
