Recently, new Education Worker, Chris Stokes delivered a workshop at Alderman Davies Church in Wales Primary School in Neath.
When talking about such an important topic, it is vitally important that you deliver in a way that children can understand. I always like to link stories and past experiences to my workshops whilst also adding a bit of comedy. This has always helped build a strong relationship with young people and keep their attention to the importance of what we are dealing with.
Chris Stokes - Education Worker, Show Racsim the Red Card Wales
Neath Council have provided £10,000 for Show Racism the Red Card to deliver workshops in over 25 Schools in their authority.
Before the workshop begun Chris spoke to Head Teacher Caryl Dobson, who was thoroughly looking forward to seeing another Show Racism the Red Card workshop after the huge success of the workshop that was delivered the year before.
Mrs Dobson also addressed the children and recorded a blog that is available for everyone to keep up to date with what’s happening in the school. The link to the blog will be posted at the bottom of the news article.
The workshop was delivered to 90 year 5 and 6 pupils discussing;
- What is Racism?
- Why people are Racist?
- The impact the media has on Racism.
- Terms that are used.
- How to deal with Racism.
The workshop was an enormous triumph and one child stated that “Racism is silly and you shouldn’t treat someone different because of their skin colour because it’s what’s under the skin that’s important.”
All the children at Alderman Davies were a credit to their Teachers, their School and their Local Authority. We hope to continue the strong relationship we have with both Mrs Dobson and her staff and look forward to delivering more workshops in Alderman Davies in the future.
