BBC Bella School Report

The news. Brought to you by the students of Bellahouston Academy, Glasgow



Due to the war in Syria millions of people have been displaced.

Britain is doing its part to help though. Over the next five years the Prime Minster, David Cameron, has agreed to resettle 20,000 refugees in the UK.

Civillians suffer most in war but Syria has suffered terribly over the past few years.

Bisan is an 11-year-old girl who came from Syria to Scotland in the hunt for a better life. She is a high school student at Bellahouston Academy. She is a refugee from a small city in Syria called Daraa in the south.

Bisan has told us she had to come to Scotland because her brother was very ill and needed an operation on his hand. She came one year ago and attended primary 7 in St Albert’s Primary School. In Syria she was only allowed to go to primary school as people have to pay for additional education there. So when she came to Glasgow, Scotland she had more opportunities and career choices here.

Bisan says that she really likes her community and her neighbourhood is quite safe. She would like to go back to Syria for a visit but she can’t due to the circumstances there. Her hobbies are drawing, playing computers games and watching TV.

Bisan said, “When I was leaving I was afraid of the war in Syria.”

“I was heartbroken and emotional for leaving but I knew I had to.”

“I started to miss my friends and family.”

Now Bisan is in Glasgow and she is really enjoying her life here.
