Greenfield Community College students have been remembering the Holocaust and tackling issues of prejudice and discrimination through Time4Success, RE and History lessons. Greenfield Arts Centre has been hosting the Anne Frank exhibition and working with the Anne Frank Trust to train some Year 9 students as ambassadors to educate their peers.
The ambassadors have been delivering a series of assemblies about the Holocaust and highlighting how genocide should never be forgotten and to prevent it on the future. On Holocaust Memorial Day, they travelled to Durham Cathedral to reflect upon this year’s theme of don’t stand by accompanied by their teachers Miss Newton, Mr Johnson and Mr Davies.
During the morning, students took part in activities which highlighted the dangers of prejudice and discrimination as well as considering the lessons we can learn from the Holocaust. In the afternoon, we listened to Marek Szablewski about his father's experience of the Holocaust. Students asked very pertinent questions and gained a huge amount from a very thought provoking and moving day. On the evening, we were able to watch an excellent performance of The Tin Ring.
The ambassadors have represented the school brilliantly and we are very proud of them.
