Year 9 History students at The BH Academy visited the Imperial War Museum in London to support their learning of Twentieth Century World History and the Holocaust.
Students participated in an extremely interesting and thought provoking study session on the Holocaust, which enabled them to focus on personal testimonies of the victims. This prepared them for the Holocaust exhibition which charted the different stages of the persecution, before finishing with a debrief from the Holocaust Educator to help them make sense of the difficult things they had seen.
The rest of the visit was spent exploring the fascinating exhibits at the museum. Students loved looking at the tanks and planes!
The students were all excellent ambassadors for the academy and the Holocaust Educator made a point of highly praising them for their very polite and respectful attitudes. The students will now act as ‘experts’ teaching and feeding back their findings to their peers in Holocaust focused History lessons.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
