SHOW RACISM THE RED CARD
7th September 2017
The Aims of the Workshop were:
- To educate young people about the causes and consequences of racism and to explore the various forms racism can take.
- To empower young people to challenge racism in the communities in which they live, providing them with relevant knowledge and information to enable them to do this.
- To help young people prepare to play an active role as citizens in an increasingly multi-cultural society.
- To enable young people to develop good relationships and respect the differences between people, regardless of their ethnicity, faith, culture or nationality.
Our Pupils took part in a range of visual, auditory and kinaesthetic activities designed to build empathy and understanding and to encourage discussion and critical thinking. The workshop focussed on Anti-Muslim hatred, anti-Immigrant sentiment, racism toward Black and other minority groups and anti-gypsyism. Pupils also took part in ‘Football and Fitness’ sessions.
Our pupils were described by the organisation as a credit to the school. The pupils fully engaged and will be sharing what they have learned today with other pupils in school. Well done to the Elm and Willow group for their participation
