  • Guide Dogs Charity Visits Ruskin

    Published 16/09/19

    On Monday 16th September Ruskin welcomed Bryan and Barclay to the Academy to highlight to students the work our fundraising for the Guide Dogs supports. Bryan lost his sight when he was 11 years old but it was not until he was in his 40s that he got his first guide dog. The dogs he has had have transformed his life – making him feel safer, enabling him to get out and about and providing wonderful companionship. Barclay is 6. He demonstrated his exceptional training and calm, intelligent and thoughtful nature throughout talks and demonstrations but don’t be fooled… Bryan informed us that when Barclay’s lead is off and he knows he’s ‘off duty’ he’s apparently quite loopy!

  • Ruskin Welcomes Survivor From the Holocaust Educational Trust

    Published 22/05/19

    On Wednesday 22nd May staff and students at Ruskin were honoured to welcome Simon Winston and hear his first hand testimony as a Holocaust Survivor.

    His talk was followed by a question and answer session to enable students to better understand the nature of the Holocaust and to explore its lessons in more depth. The visit is part of the Holocaust Educational Trust’s extensive all year round Outreach Programme, which is available to schools across the UK.

    Simon, was born in 1938 in a small town called Radzivillov, then part of Poland, now in the independent state of the Ukraine. Simon, his mother and father, and his brother were forced to live in a ghetto and Simon experienced much brutality there. However, Simon and his family were able to escape from the ghetto where they went into hiding at a farm. They lived in very cramped conditions. When they were told they had been freed and the war was over, Simon and his family became refugees and spent two years in a Displaced Persons Camp before moving to England. Simon has remained in England ever since, sharing his story in order to highlight the importance of learning from the past.
