Pupils from all year groups at Clyde Valley have been reflecting upon the lessons of history as part of the school’s marking of the recent Holocaust Memorial Day.

History, modern languages, modern studies, religious and moral education and English departments all asked pupils from S1-S3 to research and consider the atrocities of the Holocaust and to think about how modern society could make sure they are never repeated.

One of the most powerful messages of the week’s reflection came from sixth year students Chloe Binnie and Kyle Allan.

Earlier in the session the two seniors were part of a delegation of Scottish schoolchildren who visited Auschwitz to learn more directly about some of the well-documented crimes committed in Auschwitz and the other death camps.
