Year 10 Cemetery Visit

As part of their GCSE course on Judaism and the afterlife, the RE department took all Year 10 students on a trip to West Cemetery where there are two sections dedicated to Jewish members of the community. Fenced off on consecrated ground with all graves facing east, towards the Promised Land, students were able to see, first hand, the differences in burial rites within the Jewish faith. Students were as always a pleasure to take on the trip and at all times conducted themselves with the utmost respect.
