St Joachim's School Council Visit the Refugee and Migrant Project. (RAMP)
St Joachim's School Council representatives went on a visit to The Refugee and Migrant Project (RAMP) as part of the OLOG Citizenship project on Building Bridges. They went to see how they operate and learn about their special work supporting the most needy people in our society. This is the charity which St Joachim's have traditionally supported by donating their Harvest Festival collection to them.
The children were able to gain an insight on what services they offer to refugees and migrants. The children had the opportunity to see the packages being made up that are given to those in need when they come to the food bank. The visit was insightful and certainly gave the children a better understanding of the needs of some people they help.
As part of the Citizenship Week project, the children held a toy mini market, where they donated toys which we sold to other pupils. This raised around £400 which has been donated to RAMP to help them continue their wonderful work.
