Hate Crime and Holocaust Memorial Competition

Hate Crime and Holocaust Memorial Competition

Year 8 students took part in the Schools Hate Crime and Holocaust Memorial Competition 2018.  This annual competition is organised by Devon and Cornwall Police and 12 of our students won prizes for art, poetry or written work based around fighting Hate Crime and/or remembering the Holocaust.  On Thursday 22nd March they travelled to Truro Cathedral to be presented with their certificates and gift vouchers from PC Turner-Moore and PC Gameson.  They also signed a slate which will form part of the new Truro Cathedral roof.  When we arrived at the Cathedral we were surprised to see sniffer dogs, police and security men everywhere.  The students did at first think it was all for them along with the large crowd that had started to build outside the Cathedral.  We soon discovered that our students were not the only visitors to Truro that day.  Our visit coincided with a Royal visit by HRH Prince Charles.  The students were very excited to get a chance to see him and Prince Charles did see all of their work which was on display inside the Cathedral.  According to PC Turner-Moore, Prince Charles was very impressed – which gives our students the Royal seal of approval.
