St Joseph Primary Gerrards Cross are “On the Move”

STP62331 Pupils from St Joseph’s RC Primary School, Gerrards Cross took part in the “On The Move” refugee simulation activity led by Margaret Wellington, a member of the Education volunteer team.  “They are playing the part of refugees preparing to go on a long hazardous journey to escape the dangers of war,” says Margaret. “At this point, each must choose 6 possessions to take with them. Many wanted to take their pet with them and found it difficult when told that this couldn’t happen. Even though this was a simulation, the pupils soon realised the real-life dilemmas which many refugees face.”
