On Friday 27th January, for Holocaust Memorial Day, the school remembered those affected by the terrible atrocities of the Nazi regime.
Students and staff were provided with a time of reflection during tutor time and a service at lunch in the Chapel. Our focus was on learning from the lessons of the past, and being strong and courageous enough to intervene and speak out when we spot victimisation and prejudice in our own day to day lives.
In the Chapel we reflected on the hope that some inside the camps had, by keeping their light burning bright they eased the pain of others. Our reflection display had some metal wire surrounding the path God is trying to lead us on, then our students constructed a chain on this fence on which they wrote the situations they have witnessed that has needed a voice to speak out. We ended by breaking down those chains and fences and lit candles of hope around the lone light to symbolise our commitment to being strong in the face of hatred and wrongdoing.
