This week Mr Worthington has been delivering a brilliant and thought-provoking assembly in support of Holocaust Memorial Day on Saturday 27 January. The theme this year is ‘The Power Of Words’. Mr Worthington focused on the following:
- What the Holocaust was
- The sort of words and images used by the Nazis about the Jews in the years before the Holocaust
- What has been written and said about the Holocaust since 1945
Mr Worthington finished with a message for us all today: One of the lessons of the Holocaust is surely that, in the age of social media, it is more important than ever that we weigh our words carefully, especially when discussing emotive issues such as migration and the threat of terrorism.

“On 14 December we held our annual Christmas lunch for senior citizens from the local community. This seasonal event involves students preparing and cooking a full Christmas lunch before serving it to our guests. The students worked tremendously hard throughout the day and showed outstanding catering and hospitality skills. One guest said: ‘The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. I have had such a lovely time and it’s got me fully into the Christmas spirit.’ As this comment shows, everyone had a very enjoyable time and the feedback we got was really positive.”
Well done to the following students, who were involved throughout the day: Jasmine Wilks; Amy Major; Emilie Thompson; Dylan King; Amy Mander; Jessica Johnson ; Corey Crabtree; Korey Johnson; Duncan Layfield.
