Spare a thought at 6pm TONIGHT

Our students:

  • Harry Ellis
  • Eve McArdle
  • Mark Reynolds
  • Gemma Cook

…. and October Wright have just arrived at Auschwitz II. 

At 6pm this evening they will stand, in darkness at the end of the railway track in the shadow of the gas chambers.

They will be lighting candles on behalf of our school community in memory of the 1.1 million who perished there.

Please pause and reflect with them at this poignant moment.

Thank you to all staff who have shown an interest in this visit.

Thanks also to October for accompanying the students. I dropped them off at Manchester Airport at 4.30am this morning. They will arrive back in Manchester at 10.30pm.

Thanks all to the Trustees of St Omers Trust for funding this visit.
