15/02/2019 GEOGRAPHY TALK FOR YEAR 12

The Y12 Geography students welcomed Joe Breen to class this morning.  Joe, a volunteer with the charity ‘Refugee Rescue’ gave a heart-breaking and sobering account of his time spent in Lesvos, Greece where he was involved in the rescue of refugees as they were making the perilous journey across the Aegean Sea.  At present, the Belfast based rescue boat ‘Mo chara’, which is used to carry out the rescues is the only rescue boat remaining in Lesvos. 

The Y12’s study the issue of migration and refugees as part of their GCSE Geography syllabus, Joe was able to bring their Case Study to life as he recounted his time spent in Lesvos. 

We hope to welcome Joe back into the college soon to speak with the Justice League Group.
