NI War Memorial
Remember this? ✡️
During the second period of lockdown we took part in a virtual stone painting workshop as part of the new UK Holocaust Memorial in London.
Our winning stone, chosen by representatives at the memorial will be on display in London. It was painted by former pupil Grace Pollock.
All our other stones have been shipped to London and will be incorporated into the foundations of the new Holocaust memorial.
Thank you to everyone who took part. You can see our stone and its part in the wider project at: www.foundationstones.uk
Holocaust Memorial Service 2019
Ellie Pollock, Travis Carnduff and Charlie Hamilton, all from our P7 class, participated in the annual Holocaust Memorial Service held in Bangor Castle. The special guest was Mr Harry Bibring BEM wo was an amazing 93year old gentleman. Sadly, Mr Bibring passed away 48 hours later on Thursday evening. We were all very shocked when we heard the sad news.
Our school has developed a bank of resources on 'The Farm' and the 'Kindertransport'. We hope you will find them useful and interesting.
