On Thursday we received news that our Holocaust Education Course has received a nomination for the Promoting Inclusion Award as part of the 2017 Children and Young People’s Services Awards programme. Our course has been recognised as a programme of excellence with the awards committee stating ‘The Holocaust provides one of the most effective subjects for examining basic moral issues. A structured inquiry into this history yields critical lessons for an investigation into human behaviour. It also addresses one of the central mandates of education in our curriculum which is to examine what it means to be a responsible citizen. Dyce Academy’s ‘Holocaust Education’ programme enables our young people to become Leaders in using their voice to fight inequality, stand up to hatred and change the world in which they live in’.
We are incredibly proud of all involved. The Awards will be held in September.
