Director of Studies, Allan Cairns, visits Jerusalem for Yad Vashem Conference

11 Aug 2016

Over the summer break, Director of Studies Allan Cairns was fortunate enough to be selected from thousands of applicants as part of a group of 23 teachers from around the country on the prestigious annual Yad Vashem Continuing Professional Development course run by the Holocaust Educational Trust.

Allan flew out to Jerusalem from London in late July and partook in 10 days of lectures and seminars at the International Centre for Holocaust Studies, delivered by leading figures in Holocaust research, and experts on delivering the curriculum area in the classroom, one of which was given by the renowned 90-year-old Holocaust historian Professor Yehuda Bauer.

Allan's visit also included tours of some of Israel's most important historical and cultural sites, including Jerusalem's old town, modern Tel Aviv, the Unesco World Heritage site at Masada and was then rounded off by a quick swim in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth.

The trip provided important guidance on the delivery of lessons on the Holocaust which will benefit A Level History students at the College, as well as broader aspects which form part of the wider College PSHE curriculum.
