This year the school has commemorated Holocaust Memorial Day remotely, focusing not only on the horrors of the genocide of the 1940s but also by exploring the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust’s theme for this year: Be the Light in the Darkness.
The lower school learned about people who brought light into a time of incomparable darkness, through acts of selflessness and bravery. They learned about the likes of Irena Sendler, Frank Foley, Oskar Schindler, and Sir Nicholas Winton, all of whom were responsible for saving Jews from the Holocaust, often whilst putting themselves in great danger in the process. Several of our pupils produced Candles of Hope to remember the selfless actions of those individuals or produced artwork around the theme of Be the Light in the Darkness.
