In a heartwarming initiative, KES pupils, led by Mr Round, have established a Chess Club aimed at engaging with asylum seekers and refugees.
Held every Friday afternoon during activities at St Chad’s Sanctuary, the club not only provides a strategic and enjoyable experience for its participants but also serves as a unique platform for learning English. Asylum seekers and refugees actively engage in the game while receiving guidance and support from their mentors – KES pupils.
St Chad’s Sanctuary, known for providing a compassionate space for those seeking asylum, has embraced this hands-on approach to community building. The Chess Club not only enriches the language skills of participants but also fosters a sense of belonging and camaraderie. This meaningful initiative fosters a sense of community but also enriches the service experience for the boys, creating a meaningful connection beyond traditional boundaries.
