Celtic FC highlighted their proactive approach and commitment to promoting anti-racism and anti-sectarianism by hosting this seasons Show Racism the Red Card educational event at the stadium on Monday 25th March 2013.
The event itself involved local primary 7 pupils from John Paul II and St Michaels Primary Schools, who participating in a day of fun and interactive anti-racism and anti-sectarianism education.
The young people were extremely excited to be attending their local football club and were fully engaged throughout the day. The highlight of the day came in the afternoon when the young people participated in a press conference role play activity, where they acted as media journalists and posed pertinent questions on anti-racism and anti-sectarianism to a guest panel. The guest panel included Celtic FC players John Herron and Lewis Kidd, ex-professional footballers and Show Racism the Red Card coaches Gary MacKay and Jim Duffy, MSP John Mason and Sergeant Iain Arnott from Strathclyde Police.
The guest panel was extremely complimentary about the local primary 7 pupil’s enthusiasm for anti-racism and anti-sectarianism education.
As always the event was a great success and we would like to thank all involved for their contribution to the event and their continued commitment and passion for promoting Show Racism the Red Card’s important messages.
