Preparing to Stand Together HMD2020

Preparing to Stand Together HMD2020

Last week we welcomed PCs Turner-Moore and Makowska to talk to Year 8 students about Hate Crime, in preparation for Holocaust Memorial Day 2020. The theme for the next HMD is ‘Stand Together’. As a UCL Quality Mark Beacon School for Holocaust Education, we Stand Together with Holocaust Memorial Day Trust which encourages remembrance in a world scarred by genocide. We promote and support Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) – the international day on 27 January – to remember the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, the millions of people killed under Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

As part of this remembrance, some of our Year 8 students have been selected to creatively respond to the themes introduced by Devon & Cornwall Police Hate Crime Division and Diversity Team and to provide work for the annual Hate Crime Competition. Their work will be displayed at Truro Cathedral on HMD 2020 for public viewing. In addition, all Key Stage 3 students will participate in a College-wide creative project to provide work for an art installation in the Kensa Gallery in January 2020.

We were honoured to receive PCs Geoff Turner-Moore and Jack Makowska talks and are really excited about this opportunity to Stand Together to counter language of hate and Hate Crime.
