Holocaust Competition Winners of the Holocaust Competition

I am delighted to announce that the winning Poem judged by Lesley Pritchard was Esa Bhaiyat – (Bint Qays)

Oh Almighty, You made us all look different but we are all actually the same inside.

Our feelings are the same and we share them with others.

Help me not to think like those who think they are the best and help everyone else to not think like that either.

The winning poem by the Pupil Shuraa was Khadijah Khan – (Ibn Salaamah)

I love to try and share,

This shows that I really care.

When I have something I like

For example my purple bike.

I will let my friends have a go,

It feels great, it is not for show.

If everyone who is different but equal did not do the same,

I know it would be a real shame.

That’s why I won’t give in,

I’ll carry on sharing with a grin.
