Our Wales Campaign held their first ever Teachers Conference in Cardiff.
Teachers throughout South Wales attended the Conference to learn about our resources and receive training on using the resources in the classroom.
The Conference was supported by the Welsh Assembly Government Education Minister Leighton Andrews who addressed the teachers about the importance of the day and on anti racist education in Welsh schools.
Education workers Leroy Rosenior and Laura Pidcock delivered sessions during the day to the teachers.
Leroy Rosenior’s workshop included using SRtRC’s resources and commencing in discussions around racism in society and the historical context of it.
Teachers viewed the Campaign’s DVD and explored the education pack.
Laura Pidcock provided a specific session on reporting racism within a school environment and gave advice to teachers on what they can do if they experience racism in their classroom along with the reporting procedure.
Teachers then had the opportunity to hear from guest speakers Luisa Munro-Morris (Cardiff Council -Advisory Teacher for Humanities and RE) who spoke about SRtRC’s resources and their link to the National Curriculum in Wales and Rachael Beddoe – (Cardiff Council Anti Bullying team) who spoke about the services they provide.
The day was a big success from the feedback we received and the teachers were looking forward to using the new activities they had learnt from the event in their classrooms.
SRtRC would like to thank all the teachers that attended and Education Minister Leighton Andrews for supporting the event.
