Last week, two High School teachers drove a group of 12th graders to the Red Cross Refugee Center in Alsemberg. Charlotte, Nigel, Michael, Zoe and Kasper spent an hour and a half playing with refugee children and young adults from Nigeria, Bangladesh, Syria, Iraq, Guinea, and other countries. They played basketball and soccer, colored pictures, shared stories, and just enjoyed getting to know each other.
Our students truly put our values into action, and we look forward to more opportunities like this in the future.
