Hosting a community hub for Ukrainian families
We have been delighted to host the charity 'Families4Peace' at our school in order to support in providing a space for them to hold presentations, games and activities for children. They also carry out English lessons and help hosts and their Ukrainian guests find the support they need.
Their weekly community gatherings at our school offers an opportunity for families to connect, commune and build lifelong friendships.
These meetings take place every Saturday during term time.
To provide a space for Families4Peace to gather and bond as a community.
To provide classrooms and resources to support in the teaching of English to Ukrainian families.
The charity founder was an existing contact of the school, where we have supported her on other causes previously.
She got in touch with the school when the war broke out to say that she was looking for a venue for a community hub/Saturday school and we were more than happy to help.
The Saturday school was established on the 7th May 2022.
We offer our premises and contribute funds that are raised by The Cavendish School for their Saturday School Resources.
Teaching staff also volunteer to support in the teaching of English.
Start date: Saturday 7th May 2022
This is an ongoing event that takes place every Saturday during term time.
