The culmination of a school collaboration with The Anne Frank Trust UK, sees 3rd year history pupils from Brechin Community Campus curate the trust’s highly acclaimed, “Anne Frank: A History For Today” Exhibition. Pupils have been trained to be Peer Guides – an intensive, day-long workshop presented by Eilidh Lean of The Anne Frank Trust, equipped pupils to present talks on themes such as, Understanding Prejudice; Responsibility and Resistance; The Historical Context of the Holocaust; Human Rights; Identity and Diversity. Pupils will be delivering guided tours of the exhibit throughout its two week long installation on campus; until Friday 28th April.
Today, two classes of youngsters from Maisondieu Primary School came to visit, and the feedback received was excellent! 🙂
The Anne Frank Schools Programme takes the poignant messages of Anne’s life and diary and helps students understand the damage caused by prejudice and hatred. It helps young people:
- Increase their knowledge of Anne Frank and the Holocaust.
- Understand the consequences of unchecked prejudice and discrimination.
- Explore, understand, respect and celebrate cultural diversity.
- Learn more about themselves and their local community.
- Increase their confidence, as they develop their literacy and presentation skills.
- Develop respect for others.
Principle Teacher of Social Subjects, Ralph Coates, said of the Schools Programme, “I’m delighted to have this opportunity for our pupils to promote key societal themes of tolerance and diversity, and share understanding of the dangers of prejudice. The programme is designed to share the messages of Anne’s story within our local community and empower participating pupils, giving them key transferable skills.”
