Today marks Hiroshima day. On the 6th of August 1945 the first atomic bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima causing untold damage and devastation, the aftereffects of which, are still felt today.

Here at the Cathedral, during school our tours we tell the story of Sadako Sasaki a young girl who lived during the bombing and died as a result of it's aftereffects. Her story is shared with visiting students and the importance of her mission for peace is told to all.

If you would like to hear more of Sadako's story check out this site -


Today Jewish people observe Tish'a B'av - a day of fasting to end the period of mourning for the destruction of the first and second Temple in Jerusalem. This day is also used to mourn the many other tragedies in Jewish history. This holy day is marked by fasting and prayer.

Originally this was celebrated on the last Sunday of June but due to it's popularity it quickly grew to encompass the whole month of June. Throughout this month many major towns and cities around the world will honour this tradition by holding a parade, festival or march. How are you celebrating?


Looking forward to session two of our teacher training session.

Emma Crick de Boom talks to staff about reconciling habits.


Today is Holocaust memorial day, a day in which we take the time to not only remember and memorialise the atrocities perpetrated against the Jewish people during the second World War, but also all genocide in the modern world.

This year is being used to highlight the idea of 'ordinary people' -
'Our theme this year, though, highlights the ordinary people who let genocide happen, the ordinary people who actively perpetrated genocide, and the ordinary people who were persecuted...Our theme will also prompt us to consider how ordinary people, such as ourselves, can perhaps play a bigger part than we might imagine in challenging prejudice today.' -

This training is for staff in ICON Schools who are intending to take a lead on embedding their ICONS status so that there is ownership across the school community

Available in more than 500 languages, it is the most translated document in the world.'-
