Monday 27th January is Holocaust Memorial Day.
Students at Marden High have been exploring this year’s theme, which is Stand Together,and have come up with easy strategies to help us all stand together against prejudice and discrimination.
HMD 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz – this is a significant milestone and is made particularly poignant by the dwindling number of survivors who are able to share their testimony. It also marks the 25th anniversary of the Genocide in Bosnia.
Students from the Debate Society will be speaking at the North Tyneside HMD Event on Friday 31st to remember the heroes of the Bosnian Genocide, as well as leading Personal Development lessons this week. Our School of Sanctuary group will be speaking in assemblies on the topic this week too, and our Reflection Time topic is Diversity.
The Stand Together theme explores how genocidal regimes throughout history have deliberately fractured societies by marginalising certain groups, and how these tactics can be challenged by individuals standing together with their neighbours, and speaking out against oppression.
Today there is increasing division in communities across the UK and the world. Now more than ever, we need to stand together with others in our communities in order to stop division and the spread of identity-based hostility in our society.
Well done to all students who have played such an active role. For more information visit the Holocaust Memorial Day website.
BIMA Digital Day 2019 gave 40 Marden High School students across Years 9 and 10 the chance to gain an insight into a world of digital careers.

Over 7000 Students in 190 schools across 124 UK cities took part in Digital Day 2019. Our students represented themselves and the school impeccably, with our guest from Blue Cookie being astounded by how passionate, enthusiastic and innovative our students were throughout the whole of Digital Day.
