Once again, schools across the UK came together this Valentine’s Day to show their hearts for people seeking safety.
From Birmingham to Newport, schools made orange hearts to display their solidarity for people seeking sanctuary with many designing Valentine’s Day cards that they sent to their local MP, asking them to treat refugees with kindness not cruelty.
With recent events, the kindness and empathy shown by children give us hope that for a more compassionate and understanding future!
A huge thank you for everyone who got involved – in getting involved with activities like this we help children to develop as ethically-informed and proactive citizens who want to make positive change.
It’s not too late to get involved – every day is the best day to show your heart. You can get involved by:
- making an eye-catching orange heart display in school
- helping children to write to their MP about what they have learnt in school and how they think people seeking safety should be treated
- standing in solidarity with local communities of people seeking safety: write welcome cards, support local refugee organisations and make your school a space of safety.
YOU inspire us every day: together, we can create change!
