Year 9 students from Meols Cop School took part in a Personal Social Development Day on Monday 10th March 2014. This included representatives from Show Racism the Red Card.
Focusing on the issue of racism and hate crime Luther Blissett (Watford, AC Milan and one of the first Black players to play for England) and Anwar Uddin (West Ham and Sheffield Wednesday and the first British Asian to captain a football club in the top four divisions of English football), worked with the students to help them understand the damaging impact racism and prejudice has had on both of them personally and on society.
Carolyn Sharp, teacher at Meols Cop School spoke about how enthusiastically the event had been recieved:
"The day went really well, and was greatly enjoyed by our members of staff, the teachers and most importantly the students!"
"Thanks for all your hard work, we hope to work with you again!"
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank Glen Williams and Sefton UNISON for supporting this event.
