Earlier this year, Sixth Form students Naomi Edwards and Saran Sayce visited Auschwitz and met Holocaust survivors as part of the ‘Lessons from Auschwitz Project.’
Many students have benefited from participation in the project over the years, including the further work that they undertake to increase awareness of the Holocaust. This year, Naomi and Saran have been accredited for their work, achieving the prestigious title of ‘LFA Project Ambassadors’ for the first time in our school’s history.
Mr Stuart Hogg, their school teacher, commented on their recognition: ‘Saran and Naomi have been keen students of history and have really strived in this area to develop their understanding of the impact that hatred and prejudice had and still has on today’s world. The honour of becoming Ambassadors for the LFA Project is of considerable significance to themselves and the school and what is key is that they have shown real motivation in their work on this.’
