To celebrate 100 Days of Learning, students took part in a mass canned food drive, with all goods donated to the House of Welcome. The House of Welcome is a non-profit charity that supports the rights, housing, safety and settlement of asylum seekers and refugees.

Many of the temporary housing facilities it provides are located within the Liverpool LGA and support new local settlers.

More than 600 cans of food were collected across 13 classes from years 3 to 6.

Organiser and teacher Roisin O’Carolan said it was important for students to take part in activities where they could give back to the community.

House of Welcome activity co-ordinator Jo Lee said it was encouraging to be surrounded by so many young people eager to contribute.

“It was so moving to be with students who, at such a young age, could recognise that they they were in a more privileged position than others and were prepared to give back.”
