Two very different visitors

14.06.2017 - for BGS History
 
Our Historians have welcomed two very different sets of visitors to the BGS History Department this week.
 
On Monday, we were hugely privileged to welcome Holocaust survivor Rudi Oppenheimer BEM to talk with our Year 10 historians. His powerful, frank and emotional testimony was truly inspiring, with important messages of social justice and compassion for us to take away and apply today.
 
Yesterday (Tuesday) our Year 8s enjoyed an English Civil War Experience Day with the History Squad. They were enthralled with stories about the war and characters involved, getting into character with original clothing and artefacts as well as seeing – and hearing! – some of the weapons from the period.
