Educational event with Wolves the last of 2014 in England
“Both the club and the Trust have been consistent supporters of the campaign and hold an event with the campaign annually.
It gives the opportunity for young people to hear positive messages from role-models and that has a great impact on how young people think about racism."
Ged Grebby, SRtRC Chief Executive
Wolverhampton Wanderers FC hosted a SRtRC educational event for young people from local schools on Wednesday December 3rd.
Year 5&6 pupils from St Michael’s and Elston Hall Primary Schools attended an afternoon of anti-racism activities and had the opportunity to put their questions about racism to WWFC players Zeli Ishmail and Ethan Ebanks-Landell, before a screening of the SRtRC film.
Zeli and Ethan did brilliantly with questions that asked about their own experiences of racism in sport and society, advice to young people and fellow players on what to do if confronted with racism and questions about the origin and prevalence of racism. There were SRtRC prizes of T-Shirts and mini-footballs for the panel’s favourite questions.
The club and Community Trust have been excellent supporters of the campaign, holding an event every season. This was another great afternoon for young people. All of the attendees had the opportunity to make notes to complete an event report in the style of a newspaper article, SRtRC will award a prize for the favourite report.
All of the attendees received a SRtRC goody bag, including a magazine signed by Ethan and Zeli.
Ged Grebby, SRtRC Chief Executive said “Both the club and the Trust have been consistent supporters of the campaign and hold an event with the campaign annually.
“It gives the opportunity for young people to hear positive messages from role-models and that has a great impact on how young people think about racism.
“Coupled with the educational activities, which encouraged critical thinking skills, it was an excellent event.”
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank Wolverhampton Wanderers FC and Wolves Community Trust for hosting the event and particular thanks to Will, Katrina and Jess for all their help in making the day a success. Thank you to the schools for attending and of course, the panelists Zeli and Ethan for their support.
