Castle Acre Primary School

Refugee Sleepover at Castle Acre!

On June 14th 2019, the children returned to school from 6pm armed with sleeping bags and bed rolls to participate in a 'Refugee Sleepover.' The evening was designed to enhance the children's understanding of what it would be like to be affected by a natural disaster or living in an area of conflict.

"I enjoyed the team-building sports activities, but it's sad to hear that so many children around the world can't play in safety." - Etholle 

During the evening the children participated in activities such as Bucket Rounders, team games, races and 40/40 In. There was also a film show during which snacks and sweets were shared.

Just after midnight everyone climbed into their sleeping bags and settled down to try and get some sleep - not easy on a hard floor!

The evening was also a fundraising event and a fantastic £300 was raised from the evening. This will be shared between UNICEF (School-in-a-Box) and PACT.
