As part of our Sidcot for Syria campaign we were delighted to welcome the Al Madad Foundation to our school.
This foundation is committed to providing literacy and education for refugee children across the Middle Eastern regions affected by war. They shared with students their work and their aims to ensure that the people of Syria have the skills and knowledge needed to rebuild their devastated country. We will continue to link to this educational foundation offering students from Syria and Sidcot the opportunity to make connections and learn more about their respective worlds. In connecting to others and hearing their stories so we develop empathy and through empathy a moral imagination. We want our students to have the ability to look at complex issues from many perspectives.
