A message of thanks to the SRtRC team from competition prize winner
Jack Hayward was announced as the Overall Winner of our Anti-Racist School Competition 2011 for his fantastic poem.
Show Racism the Red Card were delighted to receive this message from Jack's Mum, sharing how much this competition meant to him:
"Just a note to say what a fantastic day we all had at the School Prize-giving last Tuesday. We really had the most amazing day, the tour of St James's Park was really interesting and were were really looked after by everyone.
Jack has not stopped talking about it - his school has framed the poem and they are using the laptop already!
Jack is very pleased with his prizes and we were so proud of him when he read the poem out - I think the audience really enjoyed it. We were ecstatic when he was annouced as the Overall Prize Winner. I think it is the first time ever he was speechless!! He is walking ten foot tall at the moment after winning this competition.
We, as a family, cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful day. Thanks again!"
