Refugee Pen Pals

Some of our year 5 and 6 pupils have become pen pals with refugee children in Istanbul. 

This is in partnership with 'Small Projects Istanbul'. 


'Small projects Istanbul is an independent ngo operating a community centre which provides enrichment, integration and livelihood activities for the mostly Syrian displaced families rebuilding their lives in the city.' ( 


This experience has given the children the opportunity to learn about other children and to develop empathy towards others.
