There is not any organisation in my local area that I aware of that works with refugees.
There are many ways in which the school supports refugees and many other ways in which they could also provide support. One of the ways is by providing language support which has become very important. The school offers lots of extra support to EAL children who may be coming from areas such as Ukraine. These children benefit from extra one on one classes.
The school also creates a very welcoming environment for the children who are coming into the school. It is vital for these children to feel like the school is a safe space for them especially as some of them could be after fleeing a country of war. The children are also encouraged to take part in some of the activities the Irish children take part in such as sports which is excellent for them.
