Langdon Academy Pupils join Home Secretary Theresa May at Holocaust Memorial Day Lunch
Langdon Academy has long had an association with the Anne Frank Memorial Trust and currently has a thriving group of Anne Frank Ambassadors in Year 8. These students have visited the Holocaust Exhibition at the Imperial War Museum and acted as guides for the touring Anne Frank exhibition which visited the school recently. The students have also attended two Anne Frank Trust training days where they have enjoyed working with Ambassadors from other schools in London, learning about the events of the Holocaust, Anne Frank's story and how this relates to events today.
Two members of the group, Shaan Ali and Ayra Bajwa, were recently selected to represent Langdon Academy at a special Anne Frank Memorial Trust lunch in central London to commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day. The students spoke to survivors of the Holocaust, including Anne Frank’s step sister, Eva Schloss. Guests from around the globe assembled for this important event and our two representatives also managed to speak with Home Secretary, Theresa May.
The Anne Frank Ambassadors have made an important contribution to Langdon life over many years. Their recent activities include hosting debates across the school around issues such as equality, human rights, and freedom of speech.
Going forward, the Ambassadors plan to deliver anti-bullying workshops, inspired by Anne Frank’s story, in our Primary School.
