Refugee Week at Woodside High
This term, Year 10 Oxfam Future Youth Schools Ambassadors held assemblies for Refugee week to inform their peers on the importance of the week and how Woodside could take part and get involved. Maha Choudhury, Amina Aden, Aisha Choudhury, Yasmin Abubakar and Sumeya Abdulkadir informed students about what a refugee is and what they can contribute to our society.
The Ambassadors spoke confidently about refugee week and their passion was conveyed through determination to raise awareness in the school. The Ambassadors have been working really hard on their action plan which is a continuation from the Forum that they took part in last November. Woodside was host to schools who came and participated in the Forum which required them to have an action plan which they must follow through.
Now the Ambassadors are running their action plan through its final phase during Refugee Week 19-23 June 2017. They have appealed to their fellow students at Woodside to help them with a food bank collection for a refugee centre and to gain signatures for their petition so that they can take it to their local MP and discuss their ideas for a better future.
Wishing the students all the best with their endeavours on their mission to make a better world and bring unity and peace for every single person and to remind us that community spirit is a strong driving force to bring us all together!
