Dora Love Event

Students from The Gilberd's History Club have been working on a project for the Dora Love Prize. Eight students presented their project in front of a prestigious judging panel at Essex University.

Dora Love, a Holocaust survivor, spent much of her life raising awareness that the attitudes which made the Holocaust possible are still alive and around us.
This prize continues her work and is awarded each year for the best school project that links learning about the Holocaust with the world we live in today.

The Gilberdians were highly commended for their strong message, creative ideas and eloquent presentation. Being the first school to present their project, they set the tone for the evening.
The students, alongside Mr Lane, have also been leading school assemblies this week to coincide with the International Day of Commemoration in memory of victims of the Holocaust.

We are immensely proud of their hard work, dedication and excellent teamwork throughout this project.
