Caged in: students draw attention to the plight of Refugees

Jun 20, 2014

Twenty Year 12 students spent 24 hours locked in a cage this week as part of a social justice campaign in light of Refugee Week.

The students braved the elements from 1pm on Thursday 19 June to 1pm on Friday 20 June with no food, furniture or technology in a bid to raise awareness of the plight of refugees and the poor living conditions they often experience. The students also called for sponsorship from staff and peers to support their participation in the event. All money raised will be donated to the Jesuit Refugee Service.
