On Friday the 8th of August, we had the exhibition opening for Shadows of Shoah. This eagerly anticipated evening was a rewarding experience for those who braved the snow and tricky driving conditions.

The artist Perry Trotter spoke at the evening, as well as The Mayor of the Lakes District. Daniel Gold, a Holocaust child survivor, also spoke at the event. To listen to Daniel Gold speak about his experiences and to then have the opportunity to view the Shadows of Shoah exhibition, truly made the event a once in a life time opportunity.

I encourage teachers to book you year 7 - 13 students to come and view this exhibition - this is something you do not want to miss!
