Hi Eimear,

Great to hear there is so much support for refugees in the Cavan/Monaghan area. I think key for all communities is to focus on the positives of migration, debunking from the start commonly held societal suspicions often attached to migrants, refugees and asylum seekers before the narrative has the chance to turn negative due to misinformation. As you outline schools have a important role in this ensuring access to education and supports are inclusive. Also continually, celebrating difference through school activities like cultural nights as you suggest. It all helps to build a sense of togetherness and community.
