William Patten Primary School


After walking for four days from St Albans, 120 Refugee Tales walkers finally turned into Stoke Newington Church Street at 3pm on Tuesday 10th July. At first it was quiet. Just the trudge of walking boots and the traffic, then suddenly we heard cheering. Excitement rippled along the line of walkers. Smiles, laughter and tears as we approached the exuberant cheering crowd of William Patten pupils and teachers. All the Refugee Tales walkers say thank you, thank you, thank you! We loved every bit of it: the banner, the multi-lingual bunting, the beautiful poems along Church Street and again at St Matthias church in the evening, and, above all, the smiling, welcoming faces of the William Patten children. The walk finally ended in Westminster at 5pm on Wednesday July 11. To learn more go to
