A Day of Welcome for Schools: 17th June

Friday 17 June 2022

A Day of Welcome is a day of solidarity and learning in schools that aims to build a culture of welcome and understanding for refugees and asylum seekers.

The celebration instigated by Norwich Schools of Sanctuary is designed to support schools and families in marking Refugee Week (20-24th June) and to send a clear message that for those in need of sanctuary, our communities are welcoming places.

Everyone is welcome to join in with A Day of Welcome! Regardless of where you are, we will provide you with ideas, resources and activities that make it easy for schools and families to participate, both in school and at home. For those schools located in Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex, we will also be providing resources specifically designed to share little-known local histories of refugee migration.
