I think the children in each class need to be explicitly taught about the topic of refugees, their lives and the challenges in which they face in our community and worldwide. There needs to be interactive stories online and a talk and dicussion forum where every child is able to give their opinion on how we can help other people in our locality.
The Irish red cross is a well know established organisation in my community. It provides assistance to families and people with accomodation as well as other services such as, promoting education, employment etc.
We could ask the Irish Red Cross to come to our school to help raise awareness about the great work that they are doing for others in our community. In Addition to this, we could fundraise by having a craft fair to raise money for the Irish Red Cross.
The children could also gather items of clothing and other things to provide the Irish Red Cross with additional resources for the people in their care.
