Next week is International Friendship Week. This year's theme is Belonging: finding a place for everyone in our world. The children will take part in activities exploring their own belonging in their family and community, building empathy with those who are struggling to find a place. This will encourage skills of welcoming and standing up for those who need our support in our schools and global community. We are encouraging all pupils to make a €2.00 donation towards Amnesty International and in turn they will receive a Friendship Bracelet.
