Re: Year 5 and 6 Trip to The National Holocaust Centre and Museum – Friday 13th March 2020

As part of our World War II topic, we have organised a visit to The National Holocaust Centre for the children in Classes 11, 12, 14 and 15 on Friday 13th March.  The Holocaust Centre promotes an understanding of the roots of discrimination and prejudice and we feel that this trip would be extremely valuable to your child/children.  All content discussed will be suitable for primary-aged children.

As we need to leave school promptly at 9am, the children will need to be in school for 8.30am. If your child is late to school they will be unable to attend the trip. We should be back at school in time for home-time.

Your child will need a packed lunch for the day or alternatively one can be ordered from the school kitchen.  Please let your child’s class teacher know by Friday 28th February if your child requires a lunch from school.

We have tried to keep the cost of this trip as low as we possible and therefore school will be covering the cost of £715 for the coach to and from the Holocaust Centre. We would like to ask you for a voluntary contribution of £7.00 per child to cover the cost of the session at the centre. Please bring any money in a named envelope or alternatively you can pay online through Parent Pay. If your child is entitled to free school meals there will be no charge however a contribution towards the cost would be greatly appreciated.

If you have any queries about the trip, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher.
