​Broadoak shows its respect for those lost in the Paris attacks

Along with people across Europe, we observed a minute's silence today as a mark of respect to those killed in the terror attacks at the weekend.

We know that such events can be frightening or hard for young people to understand; we have today encouraged students to talk about what happened and ask questions and will continue to do so during the week.

As we reflect as a college, we remember the quote from Martin Luther King "Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that".
