Each year our school hosts a group of children from Belarus. This is through a hugely successful community project in which we have been involved for the past ten years. The vists is coordinated by the charity Friends of Chernobyl's Children.
The children spend a month with volunteer families in Melton, Queniborough, Syston and nearby villages and are fully integrated into the life of the school. Ideally, the same child lives with the same family on each visit for the next five years, although this is not a stipulation.They enjoy participating in a range of activities including organised trips, swimming and spending time in school.
