visit to Auschwitz

Mrs Bailey and Miss Sheppard recently attended a teacher training programme 'Lessons from Auschwitz' through the Holocaust Education Trust.

They had the honour to listen to Mala Tribich MBE, a Holocaust survivor. They also carried out a day visit to both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz-Berkenau in Poland. The day was very intense and they were struck at the scale of Auschwitz-Berkenau. The Trust has provided them with excellent training and educational resources to share with the school.

AS History students will also be taking part in a Holocaust conference on Monday 6th July where they will meet and hear experts on the topic as well as listen to Mala Tribich MBE. We look forward to organising whole-school events surrounding the Holocaust in January 2016.

Speakers at the event are listed here:
