Poland Trip

During May half term 30 pupils and 5 staff attended the trip to Poland.

Here, students were able to visit a number of historical sites that would enable their knowledge of the holocaust to grow and for them to truly understand what happened at the concentration camps in Krakow. Pupils were able to visit the factory of Oskar Schindler and have a guided tour of the main building that has now turned into a museum.

On the Wednesday, staff and students visited both Auschwitz and Birkenau and observed the gas chambers, where the prisoners slept and what types of jobs they had to complete during the day. Pupils were moved by the experience and although many thought it was sad, believed it to be a valuable day.

The day we left, we visited the Jewish museum and students were lucky enough to meet a holocaust survivor who was able to give a detailed insight into her life under the Nazis. Pupils were intrigued to hear her story.

Overall the trip was a great success and pupils thoroughly enjoyed what will be a memorable experience for all. We look forward to taking pupils again next year.
