A high school in Ipswich is remembering a Holocaust survivor as part of the work students are producing to honour victims of the Second World War.

Northgate High School in Ipswich is the only school in Suffolk to be chosen to be a part of remembrance for Frank Bright MBE, a Holocaust survivor who lived in Ipswich, which will take place in January at The Hold.

Mr Bright, who was one of the last known Jewish Holocaust survivors in the UK, died in August this year at the age of 94.

Northgate led the campaign for Mr Bright, originally from Germany before moving to Suffolk several decades ago, to be made an MBE for his work with schools around the county.

As part of the Holocaust Memorial Service, held at the University of Suffolk, artwork has been created by sixth form student Sophia, which won the Anna Airy Award, of Mr Bright who regularly spoke at the Ipswich school.

This piece of artwork is currently on display at The Hold, near Ipswich Waterfront.

As part of the school's Dora Love Prize, an annual education initiative informed by the Holocaust, students are able to take on voluntary tasks.

Students undertaking the project have been focusing on a variety of subjects including safe spaces for females, which will lead to a meeting with Helen Pankhurst, a women's rights activist and writer.

Some students have expressed a desire to go into primary schools and teach younger pupils about various topics, including Frank Bright.

Year 11 student Zahraa Islam, thanks in part to funding from Northgate High School, has been able to help people in Bangladesh providing three tube wells, an eye clinic and also running a free healthcare project once a month.

She has done all this through a charity run by family members, which was established in 2005 to celebrate the life of her grandfather, Tazid Ali.

She said: "Growing up and living in such a privileged country, you don't realise how grateful you should be.

"You go back home and you see people in your family suffering as much as they are.

"It really gets emotional helping people out there and giving them a new life."

Elsewhere in the school, sixth-form students have been involved in a befriending project with dementia patients.

They also have an ongoing link with the Ipswich Town Foundation where students can learn while also playing for the Foundation.

A collaboration has started between Northgate High School and the University of Cambridge, with students at the school sharing their opinions, priorities and views on young people's health and how researchers can better connect with secondary school students.

Lauren Cross, lead researcher and former student at Northgate High School, said: "It's really important to involve young people in the research process.

"Nobody better understands what it's like to be a secondary school student right now.

"The students have been brilliant to work with.

"I've been really impressed with how thoughtful and insightful their contributions have been.

"It's been a privilege to return to Northgate to work on this project.

"It's been very nostalgic and has brought back lots of good memories."

The school also took part in celebrating Black History Month throughout October, with art, design and technology and English students all taking part.

Year 9 students at the school will also soon educate younger students about the worrying increase in hate crimes against people with disabilities as part of Disability History Month.
