Seeing all these children, some of them have lost their parents and been adopted by others, I feel it is quite heartbreaking.
The Prince of Wales described the plight of Syrian refugees as "heartbreaking" as he toured a camp near the border of the civil war torn nation.
Many of these children have been traumatised by the horrors of what they've witnessed before they got here.
Some of them have lost their parents and had horrendous experiences and it is remarkable what all these wonderful NGOs (non-governmental organisations) are doing to deal with this unbelievable and heartbreaking situation.
In some ways children are quite adaptable and resilient but at the same time one of their teachers was telling me that just looking at trees reminded them of where they have been.
The hope is that they will get back there again.
