We visited Rhyl High School for our club event with Rhyl FC.
Young people from year 7 at Rhyl High school were invovled in our event with Rhyl FC.
Education Worker Chris Stokes delivered 3 SRtRC Educational workshops in the morning at the school to over 160 pupils in year 7.
The workshops focused on introducing the issue of racism along with challenging myths and stereotypes that exist in society. The last element of the workshops discussed terms with the young people, who explored which words are acceptable or not acceptable to use in society.
The afternoon session saw the pupils watch our educational DVD who received some key messages from their role models in football.
After the DVD it was time for the Role play press conference where the pupils took on the role of media journalists. Using all the information from the educational workshop & DVD, the pupils were ready with their questions to ask the panel that included Rhyl FC player Steve Lewis, Rhyl FC community staff and Campaign Worker Jason Webber.
There were some challenging questions in the press conference and the best asked questions were awarded Rhyl FC football shirts and memorabilia.
All the pupils will be using the lessons they have learnt along with the responses from the press conference to design and write their own newspaper article.
Every pupil received tickets to a Rhyl FC match and the winner of the best written and designed newspaper articles will win additional prizes.
We would like to thank the club, the school for hosting the day, Steve Lewis and the community department for their support.
The event was sponsored by the Big Lottery, the Football Association of Wales and the Welsh Government.
