Rossall School is leading the way in terms of supporting young Ukrainians caught up in the current humanitarian crisis. 

The School has responded decisively and quickly: at least six additional Ukrainian children will join the school at the start of the summer term and this is one aspect of an extensive programme of support that includes a Community Hub. 

This enormous commitment is only possible due to the extraordinary generosity of a School community that has come together to actively respond to those in need. 

Current pupils are raising money to support relief operations in Ukraine itself whilst the wider Rossallian community has contributed to a fund established in order to support a small number of Ukrainian children for as long as is needed. 

The School has gone one step further by sponsoring a family from Kharkiv.

Yuliia and her two sons Oleg (8) and Volodymor (3) who arrived at Manchester Airport 7th April where they will be greeted by members of the School community who have spent a number of days restoring a three bedroomed property on the School site. 

Yuliia and her children have experienced an incredibly difficult journey to get here. As their ‘letters of permission’ took a little while to process, they travelled to Ireland to stay with the Headmaster’s sister-in-law Caroline Dennehy, and her husband Tom, in County Cork. 

Within twenty four hours of arriving, Tom was teaching the boys how to hold a hurley stick! They are amongst the very first families to arrive in the UK under the ‘Home for Ukraine’ scheme.
