Beth Shalom May 2015

Published on 28th April 2015



Dear Parent/Carer,

We are planning a trip for all Year 9 pupils to the Holocaust Centre at Beth Shalom near Newark. This visit is part of their Personal Development programme for this term, which is based around the theme of discrimination in society. The centre aims to provide a glimpse into the human tragedy of the holocaust historically and to look at its relevance to society today. At Beth Shalom there is an exhibition outlining the history of the Jews of Europe, the growth of anti-Semitism and the rise of Hitler, and links are made with genocide and racism in the world today. The museum is set in a peaceful environment which includes memorial gardens where roses have been planted with dedications to those who died and where each visitor can place a stone in memory of the children lost in the Holocaust. Their education team includes survivors of the Holocaust, and pupils will hear one of them speak and have the opportunity to discuss with them their experience of the Holocaust.

9FERN will visit on Thursday 21st May and 9WDCS will visit on Friday 22nd May.

We will travel to the centre by coach, leaving school at 8.45 a.m. and returning at approximately 3.30pm. Pupils will need a packed lunch and are expected to wear school uniform.  Writing equipment is also required. The cost of the trip is £13.50 and this covers the cost of the coach and entrance to Beth Shalom. Please put your payment in a sealed envelope marked with your child’s name, their tutor group and the words, “Beth Shalom.” (Cheques should be made payable to The Fernwood School). Payment and reply slips can be handed in at break on Wednesday 29th April, Friday 1st May and Tuesday 5th May.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs A Cannon                                                                         Mr C Saunders

Head of Year 7/Safeguarding Coordinator                             Head of Personal Development
