Refugee simulation

On Nov. 28 and 29, students at Trinity High School experienced a simulation of what it’s like to live in a refugee camp. Students also experienced what it’s like to be a refugee and cross a border from one country to another. They also took part in a medical evaluation and in a language proficiency experience. Following the event, students wrote a paper describing their feelings about the experience.

Trinity’s theology department was a partner with Catholic Charities for this program.
