SS John and Monica have made a pledge and on their journey to becoming a School of Sanctuary. This is a place where:


  • We foster a culture of welcome and safety for people seeking sanctuary, including asylum seeking and refugee families. 
  • We educate the whole school community about the human right to sanctuary and identifies practical means for schools to demonstrate that commitment. 
  • We build empathy and intercultural awareness through promoting the voices and contributions of people seeking sanctuary, encouraging an understanding of the experiences of displaced people and helping to combat stereotypes.
