This year our 8th graders will be writing content for our website to order to share their experiences throughout the school year. For this week, the students wrote about their recent field trip to an exhibit called “Forced from Home.” Forced From Home is a one-hour guided tour through an interactive exhibition designed to educate the public about the global refugee crisis. With experienced Doctors Without Borders aid workers leading the tour, students engaged with stories and materials gathered from refugee camps, sea rescue missions, and emergency medical projects around the world. This immersive tour brought the students closer to the real experiences of people displaced by violence and extreme hardship worldwide.
