Representatives from UNHCR visit the Sixth Form

Over the past year, the Sixth Form Refugee CAS group have been in contact with the London Office of the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), following an inspirational trip to the UN Office in Geneva that many students participated in last Summer. The CAS group started off last September collecting clothes donations from students and parents from the school community to be sent to displaced refugees around the Pas-de-Calais region, but has since taken an international focus. Since January, they have been raising money through cake sales and quizzes for those fleeing war and persecution. Scarlett Pochet, a member of the CAS Group said “We are extremely lucky to have received support from Shazia Hassam and James Bulman from UNHCR, who have not only provided resources but have also taken time to travel to Anglo to speak to the Sixth Form – we are extremely grateful for all of their help! As the term comes to a close, we are looking forward to hosting an overnight Camp-Out for our cause.
