STUDENTS from Bridgemary Community Sports College planted a tree in their sculpture garden in memory of Anne Frank.

They joined people around the world who planted chestnut trees to commemorate Holocaust Day and one of its most famous victims.

Anne Frank died, aged 15, in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, just a few weeks before the end of the Second World War.

The trees are symbolic of the chestnut tree that grew outside her secret annexe in Amsterdam.

Richard Carlyle, principal of the school in Gosport, said: ‘Understanding key moments in our past through the study of history is essential to the growth and development of every young person. All students need to value the place of history in creating a positive future.’
