Wednesday 27 January sees people all over the world marking Holocaust Memorial Day 2021 and QEH students will be joining in with a special presentation during form time.

Holocaust Memorial Day marks the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi death camp, which took place on 27 January 1945. The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust (HMDT) encourages remembrance of the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust, alongside the millions of other people killed under Nazi Persecution and in genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

The presentation, delivered virtually by QEH Head of History Miss Coleman, remembers those who died in the Holocaust but also raises our failure to learn the lessons from the past as genocides continue to happen around the world today. She speaks of what can happen when prejudice and persecution are left unchallenged and reminds us all of our responsibilities to stand up against these processes when we see them in our communities. Finally, she calls on each QEH student to mark Holocaust Memorial Day by making a firm commitment to stand up against prejudice.

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Huge congratulations to Mark who has joined the top 2% of the population as a member of Mensa. In typical modest fashion, Mark sat the test on a recent weekend and didn't mention it to any of his teachers!

As well as being Head of Religion and Philosophy, Zak leads our digital vision. He was instrumental in developing our excellent online learning offering during lockdown, much to the relief of our parents, and is now leading the roll out of our school device programme.

We have been so impressed with the level of contact we have had with the teachers, the variety of lessons produced and the constant encouragement, humour and passion shown by all the teachers and support staff.
