Holocaust Memorial Day
On Sunday 26th January 2020, 14 CCF students from Years 7-9 were selected to represent the school at Barnet Council’s Holocaust Memorial Day. This marked 75 years after the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau and 25 years after the genocide in Bosnia.
The commemoration was held at Rickett Quadrangle with this years theme as ‘Stand Together.’ The event included inspiring guest speakers and musical performances from the London Cantorial Singers, the Alyth Choir, The Barnet Band and the Youth Music Centre.
Students each lit a candle in memory of the individuals who were murdered during the Holocaust and other genocides which have occurred since, including Rwanda and Bosnia.
It was truly an inspirational event.
