Welcome Boxes for Refugees

Some of our Y5 pupils attended a workshop at the John Hansard gallery in Southampton to create Welcome Boxes for refugees arriving in the city. Different schools had collected different items and we contributed the jars of jam and honey that had been donated by the Newlands community. The children selected one of each of the essential different items (coffee, tea, biscuits, toothpaste etc..) to create their Welcome packs. Whilst we were there over 40 Welcome Packs were made by the 8 different schools attending and a further 8 schools would be attending a later session.

Thank you all for the kind donations of honey and jam!
