All three primary seven classes walked along to James Gillespie's Primary School this afternoon to see a production of the drama Lifeboat performed by members of the Catherine Wheels Theatre Company. It was a very engaging performance and helped us all to learn a lot more about the experience of some children who were evacuated during World War II.
The following text is taken from the Catherine Wheels Theatre Company website (http://www.catherinewheels.co.uk/productions/lifeboat) along with the above picture.

Today is the seventieth anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. This year's Memorial Day theme is 'Keeping the Memory Alive'.
Primary 7C learned more about the holocaust and discussed the idea of keeping the memory alive. They then lit 7 candles (one for every ten years) and decided to hold a two minute silence.
