YEAR 4: SOUTHWARK DAY CENTRE FOR ASYLUM SEEKERS n On Tuesday, as part of Year 4’s community action, 4D travelled to the Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers to lend their services. The boys did an excellent job in organising the vast quantities of items. As well as sorting the supplies into sections such as, toiletries, clothes, fresh fruit and vegetables and tinned food, the children also made parcels containing a range of food, which did not require cooking. These packages were given to people seeking asylum who are living in hostels and do not have access to cooking equipment.

Whilst visiting, the boys were also able to see how the busy centre was used. They experienced knitting and sewing activities and were amazed at the garments being made; a dress and a Ukrainian woolly-jumper particularly impressed them! They were able to see the kitchen where the Chef, Ganet, showed them the multiple dishes she had made for over 80 different people in one day. She explained that each week, her meals were dependent on the different types of foods donated. The boys conducted themselves excellently throughout the visit and were a credit to themselves and the Junior School.
