Journey

The 20th June was 'World Refugee Day', and on that day Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in Pope Francis' 'Share the Journey' walk for Refugees. The message of the walk was to raise awareness of the thousands of people who are forced to leave their homes and countries due to war, terror and natural disasters.

The Pope wanted us to walk 24,900 miles (the distance around the world) to show our support and solidarity with refugees. The total number of miles we managed to walk was 425, as unfortunately the Year 8 walk was rained off. However, our total helped reach and exceed the target set by Pope Francis!
