40 hour Back Pack Challenge

Last Thursday a group of year 6’s took part in the 40 Hour Back Pack Challenge. This was to raise awareness for refugees and displaced children. We lived out of our backpack for 40 hours with only the essentials. We had to stay overnight at the school and sleep on the ground with no mattress. We did a lot of activities to help us understand more about refugees. This was such an emotional and eye opening experience! It made us really understand what refugees have to go through and it made me so grateful for the life we live today.
