On the 18th of October 2023 the Year 9 classes of SISS went to the cinema to watch the movie “Oppenheimer”.
The movie is written by Christopher Nolan and is about the brilliant scientist Dr J Robert Oppenheimer. The movie deals with the life of the theoretical scientist Oppenheimer as well as the development of the bomb and the consequences of a weapon of mass destruction. The actors are talented, and the cast includes the likes of Cillian Murphy, Robert Downey Jr and Florence Pugh.
Rated 8.5 on IMDB.com, the movie was well received by most of the students as it had incredible elements that appeal to a lot of people. This includes great visual effects, a refined storyline, accurate representations of events and people and overall, a feel of amazing cinematic quality. The experience was excellent, and the year group is very thankful. This was also a good opportunity for the class to spend some time together outside of school.

On Monday, July 17, 2023, the students of year nine visited the Dachau concentration camp memorial site in Bavaria.
The site is a place for people to mourn those who suffered, along with being a reminder of the past so nobody forgets the dark period of Germany's history. Although the camp functioned as a prison, not as one of their extermination camps, over one-fifth of the people who had spent time there died.
In 1933, right after Hitler came into power, the camp was built as the first concentration camp in Germany. Hitler sent his political enemies there. Over time, Hitler expanded the use of his prison to criminals, homosexuals, and Jews. The camp was only closed after World War 2 in 1945.
Topics such as concentration camps are tough, but it's vital to stop repeating the past. Many students believed visiting the site was an emotional journey, a feeling that could only be experienced by physically being in the place where it all happened.
