Alex Ntung of Migrant Help gave an inspirational and moving address, and many schools made pledges to work on projects to improve the welcome they offer to refugees and asylum seekers, and to learn more about them.
Several schools showcased groundbreaking projects, and Carlton Hill, Elm Grove, St. Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Primary, St. Luke’s Primary, Blatchington Mill Secondary, Hove Park School and Sixth Form and Patcham High all received certificates from Sanctuary on Sea commending the projects they have undertaken.
