Lessons from Auschwitz

Lessons from Auschwitz Programme

This year, S6 pupils Sophie Aitken and Campbell Notley were chosen to represent the humanities faculty at the “Lessons from Auschwitz Programme”.  Humanities have been working in partnership with the Holocaust Education Trust for over a decade with the main aim of educating pupils about events of the Holocaust. The initiative involves two senior students visiting Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland. The pupils learn about the devastation and impact of the Holocaust. As part of the understanding and reflection process both Sophie and Campbell have recounted their experience below.

In June 2017, NBHS carried out an extensive consultation on school values, with parents, carers and staff all invited to answer an online questionnaire and pupils given the chance to let us know their thoughts during extended registration time.
