We had a wonderful time celebrating Refugee Week in Bristol last week. We held an event for all our pupils and their families at Trinity Centre, co-hosted by We The Curious, who brought along some fun games and activities. There was a great atmosphere with lots of fun, music, play and laughter.
Two of our volunteers also did some beautiful face-painting. We had a big outdoor space covered by a canopy (which was lucky as there was a rain shower!).
It was lovely to see so many of our Bristol-based pupils at the event having a fantastic time! Young people of all ages joined us from eight primary and secondary schools in Bristol, including our peer tutors who are in the sixth form at Montpelier High.
All of our staff team came along and were joined by two of our trustees, some of our volunteers and teachers / EAL Leads from our partner schools. We were also pleased to be joined by Alison and Rose from the Nisbet Trust, who provide funding for our Bristol programme.
Delicious food was provided by local Pan-African catering organisation, Houria, which employs migrant women and female survivors of slavery.
The event was a great way to end the academic year and celebrate the contributions and achievements of all of our brilliant pupils and volunteers.
