Two New Schools of Sanctuary in Waterford and Wexford.

Congratulations to Mount Sion CBS Secondary School in Waterford, which has become the first school in the Republic of Ireland to be awarded the status of SCHOOL OF SANCTUARY under the newly formed national committee, and the first ever Schools of Sanctuary in Munster.The school was assessed by a team of monitors from Places of Sanctuary Ireland and people​ ​active in refugee support work, refugees and asylum seekers, and was judged to be “outstanding” in terms of its commitment and activities for welcoming and including young people from a refugee or asylum-seeking background. A few days later, it was followed by the equally impressive Bunscoil Loreto, a Primary School in Gorey that is pioneering this all-important message of sanctuary for all.
