Pupils from the Thomas Ashton school in Hyde joined with four other schools across Tameside to create a large dream jar as part of a Holocaust Memorial Day project.
The pupils’ hopes and dreams of a better future for their generation and future generations have been written on scrolls and placed inside the jar.
These dreams have also been printed on to a large cube.
They were put on display at the school to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.
The jar and the cube will tour all of the schools involved next week as part of the project.
Holocaust Memorial Day is held January 27 each year and is a time for everyone to pause to remember the millions of people who have been murdered or whose lives have been changed beyond recognition during the Holocaust, Nazi Persecution and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.
