Holocaust Memorial Day

As part of the 75th anniversary of the end of The Holocaust Primary 7A were invited to create ‘peace lanterns’ as part of an art project, with children from another 4 Edinburgh Primary Schools. They created their wonderful lanterns with Mrs Watson our art specialist then attended an event with the other primary schools to hear stories of the holocaust and discuss how they can inspire peace through their actions. The lanterns are now on exhibition at The Scottish Parliament and are a beautiful commemoration and reminder of what we can all do to make the world a more peaceful place.
