Hiroshima Survivor Talk Project G

Manley Park Primary is one of 6 schools that are linked with Project G which is a project in which Mayors are working for peace with the aim of the UK being nuclear-free by 2020. 

As part of the project, on Friday 31st March, 20 of our Year 5 children were extremely fortunate to meet 2 of the survivors from the Hiroshima attack of 1945. The children travelled to Manchester Town Hall to meet the survivors and the Deputy Lord Mayor of Manchester.

Throughout the day, the survivors told their stories of the day of the attack and how life was after the attack. There was then a session in which the children were able to ask their own questions to the survivors. The children asked excellent questions (which was commented on by the Deputy Lord Mayor) and although dark at times due to the content, the day was another amazing opportunity that our children were afforded due to one of our many partnerships.

It was a complete privilege and honour for us to meet the survivors and a day that we are sure the children will remember for a lifetime.'
