Webinar: Welcoming Refugees from Ukraine and Elsewhere in Our Schools


Refugees from Ukraine are arriving daily into Ireland and into our schools.

Schools of Sanctuary Ireland is a network of teachers, schools, refugees, and communities across Ireland, with a shared aim of helping our schools to welcome, understand, and include refugees. We want to share our expertise and insights with schools that are preparing to welcome Ukrainians, so that families who have experienced trauma and upheaval can feel safe, welcomed, and belonging in our schools and communities.

Schools are invited to register for a special webinar to help schools to prepare.

Wednesday 23rd March, 10.30 am – 11.30 am

This presentation will offer practical help to schools receiving refugees from Ukraine and other places.
It includes an introduction to the basics of sanctuary and welcome – learning about the newcomers arriving, taking appropriate actions to ensure a good welcome, and sharing the learning.

The presentation will be given by teachers in Schools of Sanctuary who have long experience of welcoming refugees from conflict zones, and refugees with direct experience of seeking sanctuary.

All schools are welcome to register and attend. The presentation is suitable for teachers from primary and secondary schools, as well as pupils with an interest in helping newcomers.

To register for the webinar on the 23rd, here’s the Eventbrite. Closer to the event you can expect the zoom link on your email.

This Webinar is being organized by Schools of Sanctuary Ireland in Collaboration with the Dublin City University (DCU) which is also a University of Sanctuary in Ireland
